Hi,
I'm not much of an expert on Linux, but did you install the correct display drivers for your graphics card, otherwise try visiting the vendor of your card and installing the drivers.
cheers,
Merijn

try glxinfo and look at "direct rendering", when set to "NO" your hw-accel is disabled.

under XFree4 check /etc/X11/XF86config:

Section "Module"
..
Load "glx"
Load "dri"
..
