Wow... that is freaking weird.
Have you tried to unisntall/reinstall the NICs?
(make sure you download the lastest drivers to the PC before you do this.)

I had been there. When I remove the system, the IP is not there. I have tried to ping and arp and nbtstat it when the laptop is offline. It just seems like it is internal.
My DNS records show no conflict. My dhcp server shows no conflicts. My Wins is set

Reinstall of the NIC's. No not yet, but that does seem to be the windows thing to do isnt it. i hadnt thought of it because I thought it was something obvious I was missing in settings. <being new and all>

when you switch PC on and it goes to network, all is OK
BUT when you attempt to use network with a second device on same PC it conflicts ??
could it be that the PC has one IP. and whichever protocol starts first will get it ??
so that when the second protocol attempts to access network, the IP has been used, system 'sees' it as a conflict
in reality there is no conflict
you just have a nutsack for a boss
or have I missed something
I usually do

updating the drivers for both NIC cards solved the problem. Thanks for all your help. Untill the next time I can't figure something out!
