Did you try altering the baudrate?

Yeah, tried the "obvious" ones, wanted to avoid trying all the
permutations of this stuff since there are too many!

Just try varying the baudrates, all the way from 300 and up. Never
mind bits and parity. (the default is almost always 8bit and no
parity anyway).

Uh, I should also have asked - is it an ISA or a PCI card? For the
former, you may well need jumpering, special config utility or isapnp.

It is a PCI, albeit an old one. I've dug out another from my scrap heap and
currently trying that.... fingers crossed!

Hmm, brain slowly waking up. Now checking out the BIOS...
