      Hey! We're hearing Nvidia driver 378.49 has a few issues. Nvidia are working hard on a fix, but for now, we suggest you avoid the update.

      Already tried:
      Reinstalled Graphics driver
      Reinstalled Java
      Reinstalled Minecraft

      The launcher starts but when I click on Play the game doesn't start and I get the attached log. There is no game output and no other log.
