Fix Minecraft Bad Video Card Error

There is a way that works most of the time to temporary fix the Bad video card LG error; this should fix the error until shutdown. You will rollback your video card driver and re update. The alternate methods will work until you update your video card driver. These tend to rid your computer of the error until you restart the computer. Follow the simple steps below

Go to "Start Menu" and click on "Control Panel. Click on "Device Manager.

Under "Display Adapters" select your video card and double click it.

If you're not on the Administrator Account, you will have to use that password to unlock editing to the drivers.

Once you have access, click on the tab called "Drivers" and select the option "Roll Back Driver" and continue to the next step. If that option is not available, try to update your driver. If it updates restart your computer and continue from the first step. If you already have the latest driver version click on "Uninstall" and select "Delete Driver Software" and restart your computer. Start from the first step.

This process should take around 2-3 minutes. If the window appears to be not responding let it be. Your computer screen should flash or turn black for a few seconds. Restart the computer.

Repeat the first few steps to go back to the driver editing tab. This time click "Update". When it finishes once again the screen should flash or turn black for a few seconds.

Close everything and open minecraft. It should now work perfectly.
