Game not starting up.

  • Diablo 3 won't start up after i press the Play button in the Launcher.

    It says the game is running in the bottom of the launcher, but will not actually open. The problem started today. Is anyone else having problems like this and is there a fix?
  • Hey y'all!

    I'm happy to see that some of you were able to get the game working! For those of you that ares till having trouble after disabling the streaming service, please make sure that your graphics drivers are up to date (often times updating through device manager is not enough).

    If updating the graphics drivers doesn't resolve this, then it may be a resolution conflict (the game running in a different resolution than your monitor is set to). To resolve that we'll need to adjust the display settings in the settings file and force the game to launch in windowed mode. To do that:
      - open the task manager and make sure that Diablo III is not running at all
      - open file explorer and then open your 'Documents' folder
      - open the Diablo III folder and then open the 'D3Prefs' text file in a notepad
      - find DisplayModeWindowMode "0" and change the 0 to 1, it should look like this:
      DisplayModeWindowMode "1"
      - save the text file and try launching D3 again

    Assuming you're able to get into the game after these steps, make sure that the in-game resolution matches the resolution you have your monitor set to.
