Default FX 5200 crash on OpenGL


I had GeForce FX 5200 installed in my old computer and I now I have trouble with OpenGL apps/games. Any OpenGL application runs from 10 seconds to few hours before crashing to a black screen, totally freezing or restarting the PC. I have tried various games from new to old, have tried various apps and tried this on Windows as well as two different Linux distributions (Mandriva and Arch Linux). The effect is exactly the same. Direct3D apps on Windows work perfectly. For example, when I launched Half-Life 1 the default renderer was set to Direct3D. I changed it to OpenGL after playing for about 30 minutes and when I left the options screen once the renderer has switched the games crashed in like 15 seconds.

Can someone help find the cause of this problem because I am struggling with it for a long time now and I haven't managed to find anything on Google nor any tech forums.
