had great 3D, now I don't

When I first installed Suse 10, I had great 3D capabilities (for a $250 pawnshop laptop anyway). I was able to play the 3D mini golf game that came with the distribution just fine. After installing several other programs, and messing around in places I probably shouldn't have in Yast, I now have super bad lag with no hope of playing some golf. Dang!

Where would I start to reinstall any missing 3D drivers?

Thanks much

it depends on your graphics card... For example download drivers from nvidia, kill X server install them everything should work just fine

Hello avallach,
I got it figured out. It turns out that I had the wrong monitor selected, making some problems heppen with my resolution and unchecking my 3D acceleration option. I think I just clicked in the wrong place at some time.
