I don't think Virtualbox has 3D acceleration but you can try downloading and installing the Virtualbox Extension Pack and see if that helps

i have 3D acceleration enabled in my virtualbox settings, so either im not doing something right in the windows xp settings or something with directx, i have directx9 downloaded onto the virtualbox machine, would i need it downloaded on my actual pc?
