Angry Problems w/GeForce FX5500

I am stuck in the vgasave mode crap and every time I try to install the drivers for this card I get a message saying the driver is not compatible with XP, but I tested this card in my old machine that was running XP and it installed fine.

My motherboard is AGP 2.0 & 3.0 compatible.

My screen also runs choppy when I scroll a page or move a window.
