    Screen flickers and closes the Diablo 2 game in Windows 7

    I am trying to play the Diablo 2 game in my Windows 7 machine and whenever I try to run the game, the screen just flickers for long time and then the game closes automatically. Why it’s not working? Can anyone give me the fix for the same? Thank you.

    If there is no error on other occasions, then probably the issue is strictly related to your Game .
    But if flickering happens on some other occasions then its separate issue.

    1. Click Start--Control Panel--System And Security--Device Manager--Display,
    Check if this device has any yellow notification with exclamation mark,
    Then, Click Start--Control Panel--System And Security--Device Manager--Display--Driver--Update Driver,
    Install latest driver from either Microsoft or Any other source. Exit and Reboot. Check the situation after Starting the Game.

    2. You must check the requisite Resolutions for playing the Game.
    If the Resolution is set to higher than required resolution, the screen flickers.
    Right click on an empty space on desktop,
    Select Graphic Options,
    Select Resolution, and set it to something of a lower value.
    Set it and Exit.
    Check the flickering issue whether it is solved or not, it should.

    Try them.

    Hi Friend,

    >> The problem is screen flickers and closes the Diablo 2 Game in Windows


    >> Problem is of the Graphics driver in your System.

    >> So just check the Driver in the device manager.

    >> If drivers are not installed then yellow mark is displayed in Device name.

    >> So Just install the driver in the Device.

    >> Then Restart the System and then try to Play Game.


    I Hope you will understand.

    All The Best
