When I got my new HP dv7t Quad Edition 17" laptop, I immediately got Java and Minecraft (and Chrome). I opened Minecraft and awaited the famous login screen. I was then surprised with the following error.
In my opinion, I feel the Java 7 VM is to blame. If it is, how do I play Minecraft while Mojang or Oracle work on a new version?
EDIT: I have an NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M.
