Alright, i was using Windows 7 and had Minecraft working. Then i switched operating systems to Ubuntu 10.10 and Minecraft worked. Now i'm back on Windows 7 and i'm getting this error

Bad video card drivers!

Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.
