Thanks for the reply. I have finally found time to go through what you've told me. In short I can't get the Watchdog to work. I did a fresh install of Linux Mint in an attempt to get the watchdog module to load as per the instructions. The operating system is not finding the hardware watchdog. I have included system details below. As you can see we're loading the iTCO_wdt module, but we're not seeing any hardware being detected.

BIOS FLT2.NBR.0.38.04.00 as shipped from supplier with ring size chart.
