    "Pixel Format Not Accelerated" Error


      Hello. I downloaded the Minecraft launcher application and tried to run the game, but after attempting to run it it gave me this error:


      Description: Initializing game

      org.lwjgl.LWJGLException: Pixel format not accelerated

      The Mojang Support website (Basically the Minecraft Support website) recommends that I update my graphics drivers, but when I try doing that using Intel's Driver Utility 2.9, the generic driver it tries to download is always interrupted by an "Unknown Error", which is probably because my computer uses an Intel(R) Q45/Q43 Express Chipset, which is an embedded graphics chip. I don't want to buy a new graphics chip/card, so what do I do?
