W/o the system specs it will be hard to help but I would start by looking into updating your video and audio drivers to see if that helps. I would also try to disable anything working on the background that does not need to be working when you are trying to play the game... msn, facebook, tweeter, adobe, etc, etc.

Intel hd graphics is for your standard internet browsing youtube video watching but I don't know if its capable of playing any decent game, even if its old.

Try using this site to see whether your rig can play the game you want to run... Can You RUN It | Can I run that game | Game system requirements

As an off the wall, long ago senior memory, the same happened to me when I tried Diablo (original) after re-installing OS as 64bit. May not be the reason but I think all was good upto that time.

Software that forces basic colour scheme
I thought i'd start compiling a list of software that forces Windows 7 (and indeed Vista) to automatically revert to the Standard/Basic colour scheme, thus disabling the Aero effects within the Windows GUI. This is not a fault with Windows, the software must be calling for resources/environment...
