Diablo 2 FPS lag on freshly formatted PC

Ok, so I've just formatted my Compaq MCP61PM-HM to Windows 7 and am having a hard time running D2. I've downloaded and installed the appropriate motherboard and video drivers, so I'm not sure that that is an issue.

Basically the problem is that I'm getting around 15fps with constant spikes.

Anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Should I post my DxDiag info?

  1. does your pc's meet system requirements for d2?

    does it meet system req. for windows 7?

    If you don't know just list us joor system specs.
  2. What you listed is a motherboard not a computer model, Diablo2 is pretty old, you should be running it just fine even with the built-in graphics.

    What are you system specs? RAM, CPU, video card?
  3. The trick with D2 under W7 is to run it in Window mode and not full screen.

    Add -w to the startup link properties.

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" -w
  4. Hi guys, thanks for all the help.

    I've tried using...someone's "glide wrapper" software, which works a treat.

    Thanks again :)
