A-L-E-X, unfortunately you're right and I can confirm that your drivers are the latest available for Win XP.
Depending on the conditions and accumulated mileage of your graphic card, and if heating is discarded with the help of a fan or only passive radiators, I think it's possible that your GPU reach 100 Celsius, Space Engine make abundant use of that chip and video RAM memory, which in your case is less than 1GB minimum suggested.
This could also be the reason for some crash, high temperature and aging VRAM could raise the chances of a memory addressing problem.
I think it would be better for the card to work with lower temp so I'd suggest you to check if said fan is working and to use something like a can of compressed air to clean up possible dust clogs from the card.
If it's a custom PC case, sometimes even if it isn't, there's the possibility to force better air flowing with the installation of a 80mm case fan, thus lowering overall internal temperature. Your mainboard could have pins to attach and control that fan via BIOS, but it's not really necessary.
