Best not to top-post, because now we've lost the thread.

Anyway, I've had this - or similar - with Debian a few kernels back. 
There I had to do a kernel rebuild. I'd suggest ensuring that your BIOS 
is the latest, and if that doesn't work, to report a bug.


[jj] Point taken :-)

[jj] I'll check on BIOS, then - though I seem to recall getting it as
up-to-date as Dell had, recently.  I've had no difficulty with this
machine until this happened.
