mick 111,
remember and remove old monitor from device manager before booting into bios to turn off.

i feel for you,i had the same problem last year with a matsonic board in a tiny pc,everyone was telling me to turn onboard graphics off,but i couldnt and after a bit you get fed up of threads telling you the same thing day after day,mine was the same bios as yours,i gave up and i dont do that at all,i am to stubbern to give up on things.i took the card back to the shop and got a pci version and it was fine.i put it down to a faulty agp slot,or something else that i or anyone on this site did not know.i suppose it could be seperate agp drivers need updating or even something simple.the manual said i could fit a card and even named ones that had been tested on the board,but no detailed info on how to do it.i have since heard of others not able to do it.good luck and i am sorry that i cant really help you but i will be whatching closely to see how you get on.
