Posting this as I don't want people thinking I either knowingly sold a dodgy machine, or that it had died a week after me selling it.
It turns out that there must have been a connection in the pc that had worked loose in transit.
He messaged me to say that he has had it all apart, put it back together and that everything is now working as it should be.
I had never had any problem like this in the 5 years or so that I had the machine, so it just goes to prove what has been said 100's of times before that everything should be checked when you have transported a machine.
Make sure all connections are sound and that plugs and connectors etc don't look like they could drop out at any moment.
Ideally this should be done before the initial switch on, after the machines arrival at it's new home

Christmas starts when my parents arrive, which didn't happen the last 2 years as both times my Mum spent Christmas and New Year in hospital extremely ill.
It end when they go home.
Our tree isn't up yet, although there is talk of it happening this weekend (not by me I might add )
Plus the outside lights need putting up, so someone (again not me) is going to be very busy, as I've said sod it I don't want them up this year but have been out voted by Steve and Benji (the dog), who only wants the little conifers putting round the front with light on them, so he can pi55 all over them every time he goes out!
