Fast Texture 1024x1024

I have a problem:
My program (on windows) use textures 1024x1024 as the background, but it’s load my CPU! I can’t use OpenGL extensions, because program must work on old videocards. How can I solve this problem?
Thank YOU!

This should go in the beginners forum… What kind of video card are you using, and are you sure you’re getting HW acceleration?
