Ok that stopped the error coming up. But got another one something about
not be able to map memory or port.  The card is a built on card.

Could be the IRQ - have you checked for conflicts? Is it switchable iin
the BIOS? It might be worth toggling 'Plug n Play OS' from 'yes' to 'no'
vice-versa) in the BIOS. Failing that put the card on another PCI slot
and see if it works - this is just my experience, I hope you can fiind
the answer! Best wishes, Andrew
