I probably sound like an idiot, and I'm sorry if I do, but I figured I'd at least try and see if anyone knows what I'm screwing up.
I'm trying to download ModLoader and then the XRay Mod. Every time I do these things, I get a black screen. Here are the specs of my laptop.
I have Java updated. I use Google Chrome. I have 7Zip. I swear I've followed every single direction.
Here are the steps I take, exactly:
1. Download the ModLoader file.
2. Open ModLoader in 7Zip.
3. Open minecraft.jar file
4. Copy ModLoader .class files into Minecraft.jar
5. Delete the META-INF folder.
6. Open up minecraft (I play in browser).
7. BLACK SCREEN.
I am unable to download the Minecraft.exe... it gives me the following 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 have updated my video card drivers several times, I actually just did so. -_-
Oh, nevermind! I found a way to fix my "video card" problem. was the fix! I got the client and doing ModLoader and XRay was a snap. Thanks for the tip that mods don't work in-browser, no one ever explicitly said that.
