Fix 2 – Stop overclocking

By overclocking your CPU and GPU, you may see a significant boost in the game performance. However, doing this can sometimes lead to problems like instability in the system and crashes your game. So if Diablo 2 Resurrected keeps crashing after an overclock, you may want to turn off all the overclocking utilities such as MSI Afterburner and reset your processor to the default.

If this method doesn’t help, check out your graphics driver.

Fix 3 – Update your graphics driver

The graphics driver is essential to a smooth gaming experience. If your graphics driver is faulty or outdated, Diablo 2 Resurrected crashing is more likely to occur. To fix it, you should update your graphics driver to the latest.

You can search for the newest graphics driver that corresponds with your operating system from the GPU manufacturer’s website such as AMD or NVIDIA, and then download and install it manually.

  2. Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

Restart your computer for the changes to take effect and test if the issue persists. If yes, don’t frustrate, and move on to the following fixes.

Fix 4 – Run the game as an administrator

Some games may require an administrator-level to run, or else it will crash at startup or during the gameplay. If that’s the cause, running Diablo 2 Resurrected as an administrator should resolve the permission issue. Here is how:

  1. Go to the game’s installation folder.
  2. Right-click the Diablo 2 Resurrected executable (.exe) file and select Properties.
  3. Navigate to the Compatibility tab. Then tick Run this program as an administrator and Disable fullscreen optimizations.

Fix 5 – Scan and repair corrupt game files

It’s possible that there are corrupted or missing game files stopping your Diablo 2 Resurrected from functioning correctly, which therefore triggers the crashes. To repair the corrupt files, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Battle.net launcher and select Diablo 2 Resurrected from the top pane.
  2. At the bottom, click the gear icon next to the Play button and select Scan and Repair.
  3. Click Begin Scan to process.

Wait a few minutes until the process completes, and restart your game to see if the problem is fixed. If not, try the next solution.

Fix 5 – Turn off overlays

As many players reported, programs with an overlay like Discord or GeForce Experience can cause the Blizzard games to crash or get a black screen. To avoid an incompatibility issue like this, simply disable or uninstall it as follows:

On Discord

  1. Run Discord and click the cogwheel icon at the bottom of the left pane.
  2. Select the Overlay tab from the left and toggle off Enable in-game overlay.

On GeForce Experience

  1. Launch GeForce Experience. Then click the cogwheel icon at the upper right corner.
  2. Toggle off In-game overlay.

After all the overlay feature is disabled, your game should return to normal.
