Thanks alphanumeric et al., I do appreciate this!
Current situation.....monitor only connected via DVI.
On switch on.....NO disc activity, monitor seeks an input, and cycles around HDMI1, HDMI2, Analogue.....then switches off (led now blinks). .....still no disc activity
2,3 or 4 minutes later, disc activity starts, and machine boots without showing BIOS post screen....or offerring any ways of interrupting the boot process.
Once 'booted' in this way....all works fine (or appears to!)
