    Are you talking about D2 or D2 LoD (expansion pack)?

    Have you tried the video test in the directory; changing it to 2d mode?

    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.
