Windows XP shuts down when opening Outlook and IE

Hi, recently I added a new grahics card on my desktop computer : nvidia geforce fx 5500.
Now everytime I open internet explorer or Outlook my system (windows XP) shuts down. I have not the problem with the Chrome browser from google.
Is there something wrong with my BIOS settings ?

The fx 5500 is years old.

In fact I owned one and it was problematic. I eventually gifted it away and wonder if it continues to plague others.

I'd get my money back to get a truly new card.
