Being the impatient git that I am, I gave the PC about 30 seconds
where it was not switched on (i.e. it still had power supplied to the
PSU, but the machine was not turned on) and it seems to have rectified
the problem, at least for now.

Thankyou all very much for your response, this had the potential to be
one of those niggly issues that could hang around for a long time, but
you guys helped me fix it in about an hour.

Hopefully, it won't happen again, but if it will, not doubt I will be
back here :)

Thanks again,
