Hi, had similar problem myself, the problems are either you don't have a sufficient graphics or video card or you don't have or are not up to date with OpenGL drivers. The trio 32/64 graphic card is not one that is most likely to run with this game, because i had one for my old machine and came up with exactly the same problem, i will give you OpenGL updates but my solution is get yourself a better graphics card for Quake III Arena

http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/18800 - This is the site for the update, scroll until you see 'Download' should be under Additional Requierments

This is the minimum in Graphics cards that will run with Quake III
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All 3dfx chips and higher
nVIDIA Riva 128 and 128ZX and higher
Matrox G200 & G400and higher
ATI Rage Pro & Rage128 and higher
nVIDIA Riva TNT and TNT2 and higher
Intel i740and higher
nVIDIA GeForce 256 and higher

Hope This Helps

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.
