Windows 7: Error whilst playing Minecraft

Error whilst playing Minecraft

Hey guys, so recently I purchased Minecraft and am going to play it, this is the first game I played on this computer and get an immediate 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.

I checked Windows Update and it only found Language Packs, any ideas?
