Why don't I get full screen!?!?

I'm playing on my laptop with 1400 x 1050 resolution. When I start d2 I get an extremely small screen. Like half the laptop screen. How come? How can I fix this?

are you running the game from a shortcut? Try right clicking it and going to properties. Make sure the "target" doesnt end with -w or -window. If that's not it, then i'm stumped.

Correct me if I am wrong but DII doesn't run in 1400 x 1050 resolution, but instead in a smaller one (can't recall stats atm). So if your laptop has that resolution then DII will appear in a smaller screen and not full screen.

Interesting. How are the graphics at 1280 x 1024 resolution? Are they choppy and grainey or do they look good and smooth?

try putting your computers resolution to 800x600
Then I don't get fullscreen anywhere from my laptop. At the desktop it will be a small screen and black ll around it. 1400 x 1050 is the only resolution I can have for full screen:/


(mybe has nothing to do with it but everything works fine on WC3)

On my 1280x1024 laptop they actualy look better then on my normal PC.

As for the OP's problem, try setting your resolution to 800x600 thats what the game runs at.

your laptops screen doesnt support standard resolutons
it runs it at native instead of streatching it out to fill the screen
check if there are updated video drivers or bios for it
