Windows 7: Minecraft wont start and Chip Type is n/a

03 Dec 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit
Minecraft wont start and Chip Type is n/a

My Minecraft wont start and gives this message:
Minecraft wont start and Chip Type is n/a-errorr.png

When i go to check my dxdiag display it says that my chip type is n/a:
Minecraft wont start and Chip Type is n/a-chip-type-na.png

Minecraft has always worked until i done this clean install. I also followed the steps from the first image to upgrade my ATI Driver but it still does not work. What am I missing?

Just be sure to download the drivers off from Toshiba's website, NOT from AMD's website. Unless you have your computer built by yourself.
