Keyboard & mouse now appear to be working ok.

I need the pc for this evening and I'm loathe to switch it off at the moment, but I'll get back to it soon.

Phill, I shut down the pc & plugged the wireless USB ion, rebooted and both sets of peripherals wokred ok.

I shut down again, unplugged the wireless combo & rebooted, and the wireless combo was immedistely detected.

In the BIOS, I did enable the option which originally said:

USB Mouse Function - Disabled, both by gut instinct and I see you also recommended I do this,

Ok thanks for letting us know as it may help others in the future if they read your topic.
You said previously that you cannot try the video card in another slot due to other components, what components please.

What freq. is the video card set to (screen refresh rate)? If it is set high, you might try dropping it down and see if things work better.

Switched pc on this morning, booted straight to User logon without a single hitch.

I've dropped the screen refresh rate down from 60Hz to 59Hz, and the screen resolution went a little funky. I dropped it further to 57Hz and it was even worse - and, trying to change the resolution back to something readable also cause the refresh rate jump back to 60Hz.

You don't really want to go below 60hz. You could try faster, but I don't think that is what the issue is. Generally if you go too fast, you can have a problem.
