What videocard do you have?
What driver do you use? How is your /etc/X11/xorg.conf configured?
What distribution do you use?

what Linux distribution are you using?

What 3d graphics accelerator do you have? Nvidia? ATI? Something else?

can't really answer your questions without some more info.

edit: Uncle T beat me to it. ;)

Best way would be for you to tell us which distribution you are using and your system specifications as well. I ask this because some distributions make it easier than others to install drivers and, well, we also need to know which graphics card you have.

Regards!
