Could be any thing. You could start by running a CHKDSK on your computer.

Hi ace... I did as you said and CHKDSK/F revealed file system problems which it then fixed, apparently. PC has restarted without trouble but I've yet to see if it starts okay on a "cold" boot up. Thanks for your help. (airbus123) Peter.
