I play modern games like CoD4, GTA IV, SC2, etc. in my PC, however when it comes to play old games like Age of Empires 2 or Starcraft my system will totally lock up after playing 15-20 minutes; I cannot Alt+Tab or Ctrl+Alt+Del, mouse pointer doesn't move, ofcourse the game freezes, but background programs like Winamp still work. I Have no other option but to do a hard reset. This has happened several times with both games and apparently i'm not the only one with the problem; I have googled the problem but i can't seem to find a solution.
For both games i have installed the latest patches and i've played with thecompatiblity options (win 98/XP SP2, etc) I have even set the affinity to only one core, nothing seems to solve it, so if anyone knows what can be causing the problem please help D:

Win7 Ultimate 32-bit.
