My apologies to those who replied yesterday, but did not get an answer. We currently have the builders in, converting my old office in the stables into a self-contained flat, and what with shopping in IKEA, making tea for the builders, making sure they were following my plans, and visiting a couple of clients, the day just disappeared.

I'll try blowing it out when the neighbours are awake (the compressor is damn loud when it's charging) and hopefully that'll fix it - it's working at the moment, but it failed on a reboot which implies heat, and the core temperatures are too high for my taste at 63 / 71 C
On the brighter side, the restore worked fine, and all I lost was last weeks CCC list (so I need to move that to the data disk) and my latest desktop background. Just a pity it wasn't necessary ...

I had a similar saga with my last laptop, either the CPU or graphics card would overheat and everything would freeze. If that was all that would happen, I would just spray with canned air, reboot and slow the processor to 'summer power saving' - and possibly turn on the A/C.
If I was running Hyper-V then it would never reboot successfully, and try multiple fixes and fails. Out with AOMEI...
I found a most elegant solution - I bought an HP Omen 17, with two monster fans, and outlet ports like on the back of Concorde. I reckon I'll get the cost back in a year on reduced A/C usage - 'course, you don't have A/C in welsh Wales, being more focussed on slate tiles and dehumidifiers.
Was sick on Friday,so got in early today and found the network on which 'they' make us store everything and the internet is down. I'm going to start keeping local copies and backing up to the network as the business continuity people can get stuffed!
