Why Do I Keep Getting A Error When I Play Diablo 2?

  1. When I run Diablo 2 it won't start up.
    It says "Diablo II Critical Error"
    Error 22: A critical error has occurred while initializing DirectDraw.
    But I don't have DirectDraw I think...
    So what should I do? Unstall Diablo and start again with loseing my offline charaters? Or can you back them up?
    Note: This was really strange because it was working like a few hours ago...

  2. Clarification Request:
    The only time I ever got this error was because my graphics card was busted. Have you tried running any other games?

  1. Update your directx drivers
    Directx compatible graphic card is a requirement to run the game
