    Why can't I find where my 3d and open gl settings are? I see everything else, but I can see these. According to the book, they should be there. I've downloaded the newest drivers from nvidia. This is a new card to a newly built pc. 256 mb.

    They should be in Display Properties in Control Panel. Open up Display, then click on Settings, then click on the Advanced Button. Then you should see your settings. If they are not there its becuase the driver is not correctly installed or the AGP Acceleration is turned Off on that Advanced page.

    I have the 5200 display settings in the control panel, but I don't see where the 3d setting is. I see the open gl driver, its loaded, but can't I control it? Also, can't I control the 3d effect? I downloaded the "dawn" demo from nvidia and its in 3d, works good, but according to the book, I should have a control that I can see a 3d control somewhere. I guess I'm confused.... I have a 5200 fx tab in control panel/display/advanced.

    You can't "control" an open gl driver. The system does. It sounds like you need a new GeForce driver. Get it off their website or get it off www.driverguide.com
