I just found an old copy of Diablo (the first game) in a box and whacked it into my laptop I purchased just yesterday.
After the quick install I hit play and found that the screen remained black (nothing was rendering). There was however sound.
I downloaded the patch but still nothing.
With it being a new laptop, I figure I might be missing some required software like Direct X maybe? I'm not really sure.
If anyone has any suggestions or knows how to fix this issue, that would be really helpful.
