Check glGetString(GL_VENDOR). If doesn't say NVIDIA, you don't have HW acceleration.

There ARE some operations which are not HW accelerated, even if you have the right pixelformat set. Stencil in 16 bit color res comes to my mind. Use true color, if that's the case.

Be more specific on what you believe is not HW accelerated.

Getting HWT&L is easy, but using it efficiently/properly is not at all easy. In some cases, performace might even be the same as SWT&L, if not worse.
