Serious crashing issue

I got HoAE today and less than 5 minutes into every game, my computer BSODs and resets. I've tried so called "safe mode", I've tried changing graphical settings, I've tried changing graphics card drivers.

My rig:
Processor - AMD64 X2 4400
Graphics - Radeon X1900XT
RAM - 2Gb GSkill Dual Channel PC3200

Are there any known issues with the above? Does anyone have any ideas how I can fix the problem?

What is your audio card and are you using emulator of cd-drive (daemon or alcohol) ?

I have EXACTLY the same problem, Crashes and reboots my whole computer.

I can play 5 seconds to 5 mins only.. Crashes EVERY time.

I have just finished reinstalling XP Pro to see if that fixes it and even on a clean install with the latest drivers for everything it still does it.

AMD 4400 X2 Dual Core
2gig Dual Channel RAM
2 x XFX 7600GT XXX's in SLI
Soundblaster Audigy 4 Sound Card
Asus A8n-SLI Deluxe Motherboard

I even tried the CPU updates that came on the CD and they didnt help.

Info from the log files:

The note with the following text is included with every game box.

If you happen to be the owner of Creative Labs Audigy sound cards series and you are experiencing problems while playing "Heroes of Annihilated Empires" - constant crashes, reboots, blue screens, etc, please, read the instructions below. First of all please update your drivers to the latest ones. The latest drivers as of the game release date can be found in the "DriversSoundCreative SB Audigy" folder on the installation DVD. Please launch the driver setup program and follow the instructions. Secondly, you have to cut some hardware acceleration features. Go to "Start Menu", select "Settings", select "Control Panel" and click on "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. In the windows opened, please select "Audio" tab and on the "Sounds Playback" panel click "Advanced..." In the new window select "Perfomance" tab and on "Hardware acceleration" selector move the slider to the "Basic acceleration" position (2nd position from the left). Click "Ok" and try to play the game. If it does not help, please select "Emulation only" (1st position from the left) in "Hardware Acceleration" selector.

well dropping the accel down to basic seemed to work fine.. played for about 40 mins with no crashes.

So thanks for pointing that out to me !

Though the fix itself leaves a bit to be desired

I'm on a Soundblaster Audigy too, I never figured the sound could be the problem tbh. Thanks a lot for the feedback folks, I'll give your advice a try and see what happens.
