Whenever i try playing minecraft this is what i get:

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.

its just you, you used microsoft update and have "Generic Drivers"
you need to go to your system manufacturer and download their OFFICIAL DRIVERS.

ive done video rendering for a year, im pretty sure that is your issue.

org.lwjgl.LWJGLException: Pixel format not accelerated

indicates that you have an Onboard Chipset card,(you have a retail computer motherboard/no GPU)
and Pixel format not accelerated says that the driver cannot enable OpenGL

therefore leaving that you have generic drivers

Google "Speccy" and run that, look under your video card details, you should be able to find the maker there.

Once you've done that, go to their website, use google to hunt it down.

If you don't know what your doing ask an adult with great pc skills to help you update the drivers.

If the game doesn't work after all that, you might have to run the game off a custom jar file which might be a little complicated to find, message me if it comes down to that.

Other than that, good luck.

The fix is explicitly stated in the report itself.

Find out the manufacturer of your video card. You can usually find the latest drivers on their website.
