Well, if it works fine in Standard VGA but not when you've got the normal drivers installed, it sounds like either a driver issue or faulty RAM on the graphics card. You can't do much about the second one short of replacing the graphics card, but you can certainly try updating your video drivers to see if that has any effect.

Perhaps not enough RAM. Need more info on the system.

When you insult someone by giving them a C grade it's customary to provide some sort of explanation for the poor grading--you should at least have asked me to give more information before deciding my answer was worthless.
