This might be system dependent (OS, graphic card, driver). The 
expression works as expected on my system.

In[1]:= Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2}]

[... A nice colorful graphic of the surface is displayed ...]

In[2]:= $Version

Out[2]= "6.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (April 20, 2007)"

Jean-Marc
