Try running it in windowed mode... Right click on the icon and go to properties... Then at the target command path, add a " -w" to it... So, when you're done, it should read something like "C:\Program Files\Diablo II -w" (No quotes, and remember to put a space before the -w...)

This will by pass the starting movies, and all the in game cinematic, which I suspect is hanging your computer up... If that doesn't work, try a reinstall...

first run dxdiag and run the video tests for both directdraw and direct3d
make sure the tests run without any problems

then try copying the mpq files from the cd's to your diablo ii install folder
that speeds things up alot
if windows cant copy the files your play cd may be damaged
