i have a "new" computer with windows xp media center edition on it and i just bought diablo2, and installed it today. when i start it i get bluescreen and the computer resettes himself. i have tried all sorts of "fixes" from lots of forums, me and my bud was gonna play it today, but my wont start, have reinstalled it and repatched it also.
No DII works fine in WinXP, and Vista as well so it's not too old. My guess would be a video driver issue. What type of video driver do you have? Make sure all your drivers to all your devices/hardware are as updated as possible, and I'd also suggest running a Scandisk scan.
