Hi Flo. Yes, I have tried to Disable Renesas in System Configuration which also changes the General tab from Normal startup to Selective startup (which doesn't seem to make any difference to the way anything else operates). There's obviously some kind of conflict between the hardware & software but I can't find it. Going to try a different "cheap" multi-port card to see what happens.

Some of the things I've tried:
I've uninstalled Renesas Electronics via Programs and Features, rebooted and re-installed the Renesas drivers from the FebSmart website and from the mini CD that came with the card...Sometimes the card will work again after doing this, sometimes it won't -- I haven't figured out what exactly I have done when it decides to work the next time...
I've tried using a different motherboard PCI slot with no change in the card's behavioral operation...When it works, it will continue to work as long as the computer is left on (tested by leaving the computer running for days at a time)...It always survives Sleep mode and sometimes it will still work after a Restart or after a cold boot but sometimes it will not.

The problem could be within the power supply (650 watt Gold) or one of the peripherals that are plugged in to the machine -- EG a cheap mouse, keyboard, the dual display video cards, the USB video adapters one of the monitors (8 in total) etc. etc.

All I wanted was to add some extra USB 3.0 ports to plug more stuff into...
(more stuff that will cause other issues LOL) - - might be asking for too much.
After-all, it is a 10+ year old build that's been running 10-14 hours a day, every day, using an operating system that's obsolete...nothing lasts forever.
