OK, then what it seems to be the issue is the onboard is failing.
Since you have the PCI Express slot you may consider investing in a newer card and trying that.
You could try a cheaper card to make sure. If you have a card laying around try it.
Let me know what you think.

you might be right, because i had the new card which required a 300 wat psu and i think that sucked up the power, leaving nothing for the mouse or keyboard

looks like i'll just have to return the psu and get a new vid card thats compatible with mine

If you were to go to a PCI card then you won't need a PSU connector for it.
Graphics may not be as good but it would take care of PSU issue then.
Also a lower end PCI Express may work for you
