Hi Lagagnon, thanks for that. It was an issue with the driver, I was using the 71.xx, as it had worked for me previously. I switched to the 96.xx driver and ended up with a black screen. After a bit of searching on the good ole Internet I found a fix, which was to add the following into the "Screen" section of the xorg.conf:
Now, I do not understand what that did or does but hey presto everything is working sweet, I even get a spiffy Nvidia splash screen. So all is working lovely and I am impressed with the finishing touched to 5.9. So I am off and setting up as I need and am looking forward to some happy Vectoring. Cheers heaps for everyones input and help.
