    Obviously you need a multimeter to check the CMOS battery voltage

    Steve makes a good point. You might try disabling one at a time though so that you can really isolate whether one in particular is causing you difficulties while the other may not.

    I was paying attention only to Windows Fast Startup because the manner in which it operates is simply more prone to causing potential issues.

    In case you are interested in knowing a little bit more about what Fast Startup actually does, here is an article that does a pretty good job explaining how it works:

    The Pros and Cons of Windows 10’s “Fast Startup” Mode (howtogeek.com)
    As the problem still arises with both Fast Startups disabled I guess I need to get the PSU and capacitors checked out - any particularly good place to get this done, as it's beyond me?

    It's simplest to test by substituting a different PSU. Google the 'paperclip test' to check basic PSU operation.
