Default no direct draw????

hey all, im trying to get diablo 2 to work on my friends computer and every time i go to start the game up it gives me error 22 to tell me their is no direct draw, i really dont understand this. Im runnnig windows Xp, 2.78ghz, 512mb Ram, Nvidia Geforce 4 MX 440 with AGP8X.

I have the latest version of direct x 9.0c and in the direct x diagnostic tool under display the video card i enabled but direct draw acceleration is not available.

Any help would be appreciated cause i can run warcraft 3 and quake 3 arena just fine.

Try reinstalling Diablo 2 using direct 3D instead. It may help. I know there are the direct draw and direct 3d options when you reinstall, just choose the non direct draw one.

6600GT PCI-E for sale/Trade. Check the FS/FT forums on tech-forums for details.
