  1. I recently got minecraft on my computer and when I went to run it I got an error message saying I have bad video drivers. I don't know much about computers and youtube doesn't help.
    My video card drivers are: Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family and my operating system is Window 98 professional. Please help.

    Your onboard graphics chipset (especially a chipset so dated) is not going to help you that much with computing projects.

    Opps sorry!!

    I confused your post with the Bitcoin Mining topics being discussed. For some reason I associate the two together.

    Well, you just need to update the chipset drivers - If it's still supported. Also, I am not sure what the minimum requirements are for Minecraft, but Win95 and your dated Intel chipset may not be quite enough.

    +1, even for a non-demanding game like Minecraft, the computer you have is just not sufficient.

    Edit: If you have $25, get a Raspberry Pi, it can play Minecraft.
