Ok thanks for that, that would explain it so I will keep them.
Still tracking the main problem with the graphics card, so many references to it as well but they all say the same, download the new motherboard drivers and graphics drivers, but done this and no affect.
Taking a linear approach with the vgasave which installs as the main video driver, but that seems to be coming to the same conclusion as above.
I have at last solved the problem, but not sure how.
All I can say is that after browsing the net for many hours, it was suggested that it may be in the bios, and after fiddling with many of the settings it eventually came to life. Not sure which bios setting it was, but it works.
ATI confirmed that the secondary graphics listed in the device manager is correct.
If anyone is desperate enough I can let them know what my settings are to see if they can replicate the cure.
