Good day Rob

I assume you have loaded up the drivers
if not this one may help  came out I think about Aug/sept

same kit on another machine here Asus board  Intel 8400 chipset
with same card as you difference however,is running 32 bit

So looked up the 64 bit version for you above

Oh, one more thing I found I had to reload twice for some reason the
samsung screen install disk  ?
now its fine  running tyhe syncmaster 2243 on that older box
