When diablo 2 is loaded the game dose not go full


If you are not playing in windowed mode, Diablo II takes control of your screen and changes it's resolution down to 800x600 or 640x480. If you are in windowed mode, there are other things on the screen, so Diablo does not have control of your resolution. Diablo II can not scale up it's window to more than 800x600. If you want the 800x600 to take up more of your screen, then set your screen to a smaller resolution.

Hi,

Your PC is not supporting the current resolution with the game, you need to upgrade the graphics driver or reinstall it. If still dont work change the resolution settings in the game, else change the graphics card.

Acer widescreen extend sides when setting old resolution


You have entered the area between a rock and a hard place. The older games are not aware of the possibility of a wide screen. Either put up with the fat and large images or get a second 4X3 ratio monitor for your older games.
I do not know of any driver to do what you are asking.

Monitor acer al1916w


Hm. Well, it might not be the monitor issue. What is your computer model? Are you using a regular PC, laptop (is it wide screen or standard?..in other words is it a square or rectangle..?), MAC, etc? Secondly, what is the resolution of your monitor? I believe this must be a card issue in your computer. Have someone check out your graphic card to make sure its compatible with your game. Some times the resolution can cause issues on computers. My husband has ran into that with a few of his games. He could simply go internally on the computer options to change the resolution on the graphic card in order to play the game. It wouldnt look as awesome as it really should, but this should help you out. Good luck. Let me know if you're still having problems. Cheers!
