www.blizzard.com there's a lot more help there then here. it's funny how some ppl come here to post when they should go to the game's official website to request support first.

the system requirements are clearly not the problem. your system configuration is more than likely sub-optimal or there is a hardware incompatibility.

they're not going to release any newer patches either. why would they?

You said you wanted to play Diablo. Just buy Diablo II. Same game just 20x better.

could be that Diablo won't run on Windows XP.

Right-click on the icon on your desktop, and press properties. After that change system compatibility from Windows XP to Windows 95/98 then it shuld work fine.

Yeah, Diablo works in XP, I tested that theory about 4 1/2 years ago. Just don't use a burned disc; Blizzard games won't run with burned discs.

This computer is f---ed...
