IDK what kinda of video card you got. Those specs aren't all that great.

go here

http://www.lavalys.com/products/dow...p?pid=1&lang=en

DL it and then tell us what your specs are and plz no copy and paste. Look for mobo, CPU, Ram, and Video card. Then come back and tell us your specs.

Erm can't fidn any drivers. If ya got Win Xp SP2 go to my coputer right click go to porpties go to hardware. device manager, and scan for updated drivers. If that dont' work then well IDK. But really it should be bale to RUN D2. It is a old lappy but well i ran D2 on 64 MB of ram, and 300 MHz intel before without a hitch.
