Help with quake3

The video graphics for quake3 run super slow for me. I have tried the various settings offered by quake to no avail. I can run Counterstrike unreal and other games but this is the one that gives me problems. any help is appreciated.

quake3 is only playable in accelerated mode. cs and ut (not ut2003) can be played in software rendering mode too. q3a not. make sure you have opengl support and an accelerated graphics card with current drivers.
