    Hi All,
    I was hoping to get some help from all you Gurus out there.
    I have a Radeon 8500 with 64mb.
    I run WIN XP pro.

    I cannot run most games. Diablo 2 for example comes back with an error that says. Error 22 unable to initialise direct draw.

    When I looked at dxdiag it has hardware acceleration not available for direct draw.
    When I looked using Powerstrip I saw that AGP transfer mechanism was disabled.

    I desperately need help to enable AGP transfer mechanism.
    Please help

    Thanks in advance

    I myself could not run Diablo2; it reported no supported graphics.

    The fix is use XP drivers for your graphics cards and then load the game- after you played and loaded atleast 1 time successfully; reboot.

    Then you may update to any driver version you wish :)

    hope this works...
