PC issue with video card

I have a PC:  HP Pavilion A1210N Desktop PC (AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Processor, 512 MB RAM, 200 GB Hard Drive

I recently upgraded to Vista Home Premium and I'm now having issues with Windows Photo Gallery to where when I attempt to Crop an image, I get the BSOD.  I wanted to know if I downgrade to XP, how can I put Windows Photo Galley back onto my pc?  Is just a matter of downloading the software or can it even play within the XP world?

Lastly, is it more simple to just purchase another video card and install the card so I can use Windows Photo Gallery?

It may be prudent to troubleshoot exactly why you are getting a BSOD on that machine before you look at doing a full "downgrade" back to Windows XP.

That being said, there is a version of Windows Photo Gallery for WinXP:

you have much too little ram - as i posted in your other question
install 2 GB Ram at least, or better 4 GB
