Well there's not much you can do. I have checked the Autocad site myself and your model is indeed not fully supported. Here is an extensive faq you could read: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=6711774&linkID=9240618#section2. You might try to manually enable hardware acceleration if you're confident your card can handle it.
Btw, I don't think this is the right forum to ask your question.
