Thanks Dave for that. I waited until the HD activity ceased then did as you
suggest. This worked OK and from there I was able to get back to my normal
mode (1280 x 1024, 15 million colours & 75 Hz on a Videoseven 17" LCD).

So that gets me going without the reset, but what do I need to do to
prevent the problem in the first place?
