Without seeing your code it is difficult to know whats going wrong, but here are a few things to check:

1. Make sure that the texture is definitely being read and loaded from disk (e.g. that the image file is in the right place)
2. Make sure that you don't call glGenTextures before the OpenGL context has been created. I'm basically saying don't try to load textures before CreateWindow has finished.
3. Make sure you specify texture coordinates for every vertex on every textured shape you are drawing (using glTexCoord2f calls).
4. Make sure you call glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D); before drawing your object.

If none of those help ya, try posting your code in [ source ] tags.
