Cheers Darren, I replaced the battery yesterday and turned off the power when I shut down last night. I still got the black screen this morning but chose to enter setup & load setup defaults. Now it boots up normally. I was surprised that the battery only lasted just over a year, otherwise I may have suspected it earlier. I would expect them to use rechargeables by now anyway.

Anyway, TomTom is still powered when the computer is off unless I turn the power off at the wall, and when turning the power back on, it's green light comes on again, and I can still boot up the computer by turning TomTom on.

But as I can now turn off the power without losing settings, it really doesn't matter now.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Keith
