Vista dual booting XP, doesn't read video card

So I recently partitioned my Hitachi HDD to have 30gb for vista and the
rest of the space for files and XP

It runs fine.

Earlier, I installed 2gb Patriot RAM 9200, I had 2gb of the same
already installed, I had to remove my EVGA 8800 ultra superclocked @
768mb to fit it in because it was blocking the slots, I then put it
back in. (I installed vista after this) When I start running it, I go
to see my system performance rating, 5.9,5.6,1,1,5.9, So i'm thinking,
what the heck? (I have ones in gaming performance/aero performance) I
went into device manager, and it says my display adapter is a "Standard
VGA graphics adapter" with 14mb physical memory.

When dual booting it also gave me the option to do a memory scan, it
said there were errors that I would have to contact the company to
discover.

I went to play Crysis, (running on XP) because I didn't want to bust my
vga adapter, it ran okay for a while, then randomly shutdown, I opened
it up again, then it froze up and I had to restart manually, afterwards
it repeated, I changed my display settings to medium, considering that
it might be a power problem (The demo for the game on high ran fine and
never crashed) So I ran it on medium, I got BSOD, I uninstalled Vista
and merged the partitions, made a new one, and just reinstalled it. I'm
having the same problems.

Earlier this year I had to replace my mushkin RAM because it quit
working.

So - I'm thinking either I messed up my video card? (I have a IPR
warranty on my entire computer so no worries), Or my MOBO keeps
failharding all my RAM and I need that replaced.

Thanks lots.
