got new card working. Set bios to check for pci card first then disabled onboard graphics in device manager.
Sly, I can't find any settings to disble onboard graphics in bios. Presume it can be done if you have done it but what the hell, got it working now at last so i suppose if it ain't broke i better not fix it. :)
Thanks again for your time and responses.
