    I had some system hooha going on last week, now when I launch Diablo and go to configure video it only allows Software rendering. I tossed the D2 prefs but it still isn't cooperating. Any ideas on how to get D2 to see my video hardware again?
    Thanks!

    one thing that Blizz had up for an old fix for an issue between D2c and Radeon cards, might work for you.

    restart w/ extensions off
    trash d2 prefs and display prefs
    trash current video drivers and related extensions.
    reinstall card drivers
    restart
    run D2


    might help, might not.
    frankly I am finding that "software rendering" is the best option for my setup to get a consistant framerate out of the expansion pack right now. Unfortunately, it doesn't look quite as purty, but I don't die because blizz can't code their game properly. :)
