RealView not working properly

I noticed something odd with RealView the other day and I can't figure out how to fix it.  Basically, RealView only half-works.  I get the crisp shadow on on the floor and floor reflections, but none of the self-shadows and realistic texturing and reflections on the part itself.  RealView worked perfectly in SW2010, but it seems like there's something wrong with it in 2011.  I've attached some drawings that compare what I see when I switch between normal graphics and realview graphics in SW2010 and 2011.  Has anyone else had a similar problem?


Here's my system information

Solidworks 2011 sp 1.0

HP xw8400 workstation

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500

Windows XP 64-bit sp2


I've updated my video card driver and installed the latest SW service pack.  I have checked that the openGL checkbox is cleared. Is there another option or setting that I'm missing?  Or is it just time to get a new computer?
