SolidWorks locking into Software OpenGL Mode

Ok, hopefully someone can help me out here. My system is:

2.6Ghz AMD Athalon FX-60 Dual Core
2GB RAM
PNY Nvidia Quadro FX 570 PCIe
Driver Set: 6.14.11.6262 (as reccommended from SolidWorks' Video Card testing)
Solidworks 2008 SP3
Windows XP SP3

My problem is that whenever I open Solidworks, it greys out the box and checks 'Use Software OpenGL". Clearly I do NOT want to use software OpenGL as it bypasses the hardware acceleration of the video card.

Has anyone seen this or can offer any help?
