" No video modes "

I recently encountered a problem within Diablo2. When running the video test I get a " no video modes " error
It would seem that this game which was working, now doesn't as there seems to be no 3d acceleration??

Consistent with a simple XP install.

Microsoft does not install:

1. Latest BIOS.
2. Set the BIOS settings.
3. Install drivers for video cards, motherboards, USB and other things.

All this is up to the OS installer to perform. In short, you may want to ask the supplier to finish the install if the hardware is 3D capable.

DirectX Diagnostic Tool (Dxdiag.exe) - View information about installed components and drivers for the application programming interface (API), testing sound, graphics output, and DirectPlay service providers, and disabling or enabling DirectX hardware acceleration features: In the Run dialog box, type dxdiag and then press Enter.
