    As you dont say what you have done so far here's a couple of suggestions

    Make sure you have the latest drivers for the video card and the latest direct X installed, also use the diagnostics check in DX to make sure your video card can do direct draw, direct3d and agp texture acceleration

    DX diagnostics can be found in the system32 folder, when run let it certify your drivers with MS.

    Regards
