    WinXP? Do other programs work fine with the board? Were you once using an onboard graphics adapter and switched to an AGP model adapter without telling the BIOS to look for a video board somewhere else first? Do you have a recent version of DirectX installed after you installed the new video board?

    There are any number of possible causes. More information about your setup would be very helpful.

    Did you uninstall the old video drivers before you installed the new card? Have you checked device manager to see if the new card is properly installed?

    Two entries for an ATi board is customary. Since 2d works fine and 3d does not, either return it for a replacement or RMA the board. I've had to do it before and it happens occassionally.

    If the vendor will not replace it with another just like it, then you have to make contact with the video board's manufacturer. RMA is what they will give you to return the board for replacement. It stands for Return Material Authorization and is basically the company's permission for you to return the board for repair/replacement. If it is a relatively new purchase, however, I would recommend trying the place you bought it first.
