This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • You're not running mods, but the error message seems to indicate the hardware you're running on doesn't support the required level of OpenGL, based on a quick google search. What graphics hardware are you running this on? – user973 Dec 19 '16 at 21:45
  • I'll tell you this much: nobody has hacked your minecraft. – rivermont - Will B. Dec 19 '16 at 23:16
  • If you have a new question, please post a new question. Replacing this question with a completely different crash log for a different program (a MC server instead of the MC client!) is not how to ask a new question. (I removed the changes.) – SevenSidedDie Dec 23 '16 at 23:28
  • sorry that was my only choice I couldn't ask a question until tomorrow – Night_Of_Raider Gaming Dec 23 '16 at 23:35

Your error code shows up in this question over here.

org.lwjgl.LWJGLException: Pixel format not accelerated

Your graphics card or driver is unable to handle Minecraft.

There is a help page that may have more information for you.

    thanks so much I've been really wanting to play minecraft! but how can I fix the graphic card. do I have to buy one? – Night_Of_Raider Gaming Dec 19 '16 at 21:55
  • It depends on what you're running this on. If you're running this on a laptop, you don't have a lot of options. If you're on a desktop, this could be a driver or hardware issue. The help page link on my answer has instructions that you can try to verify your OpenGL driver is correct. – user973 Dec 19 '16 at 21:57
  • My dad has Uninstalled my graphic card and now I cant play anything do you know how to fix this MADMAxJr? Or anyone who can help. – Night_Of_Raider Gaming Dec 20 '16 at 1:11
  • I corrected the help page link in my answer, it might not have worked before. You have to have a video card and a driver that supports the OpenGL requirement. That's all there is to it. – user973 Dec 20 '16 at 1:19
