Thank you for your help. I am sorry I did not reply immediately, but was without my computer fro 2+ days.

Your welcome Margaret and no problem
It was the firmware that had an issue, and needed a hard restart. We did this just then. It will now be ok.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
