Never encountered such in XP, if anything XP has been more rock solid 
than most any other OS I've encountered.

More likely here the new card got some (software) configuration reset 
and happy. (.ini, .conf, something)

Not sure if putting the old card back in to the same slot will change 
what you noticed (assuming configuration doesn't get reset).

It might if you put it in a different slot, though, and would be 
interesting to find out.
