Since posting here for help. The pc has been very well behaved. I did take the side off and notice that theres a dome shaped filter holder on the panel and wondered whether this was causing any problems. Like trapping wires etc`
Can I remove the object. Doesn't seem to catch much dust in the filter (It would fit over the main fan thats attached to the processor)
Its not unknown for Windows to throw a wobbly and then carry on normally - don't know, but perhaps its capable of some simple form of self repair. Certianly, if you load in safe mode, all sorts of repairs seem possible. I reckon you are now at the 'if it ai'nt broke' stage.
