Oh, also.. one thing is also, that you may have overheated your graphics card from too much continious use, with no heatsink/fan on it. Or under task manager, if you changed the priority of it. That makes a BIG difference. Same thing happened to me. and i still am working on changing it back. It just wont stay changed. Its really weird.

ok ill do a clean up and defrag, and i just had my HDD reformatted so thats all good. I think something in my PC is messed up because every now and then it makes kind of a grinding noise, it sounds like the harddrive, could that be the problem?

I'm a little confused here... what are you asking? How to turn on 3d acceleration? What are your specs? Please be as clear as you can.

YOu should probably install DirectX 9.0c. As well as upgrade that video card. I'm assuming you're using AGP 4x/8x. In which case, get this video card, the best AGP video card on the market.
