what graphics card are you using?
do you have the crrect 3d drivers installed?

have a look at the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file and see if the line that says
Load "GLX" has a # in front of it
if it does, remove it

because this is a system file you can only edit it as root
the easiest way to do this is to invoke a text editor from the command line as root

open a terminal
enter root password
then type the name of the text editor you wish to use followed by the address and name of the file you wish to edit (check to see which editors you have installed)
kedit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
kate /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
