Serv warning and computer reset whilst driving, only happened briefly

Hi guys,

I've got a p-reg '96 laguna RXE 2.0i, and when i drove home from work this morning, i was getting up to speed having just got on to a dual carriageway, a few minutes after putting 25 worth of petrol in the car, and suddenly the rev and speedo both dipped to 0, the serv warning light came on, and the compiuter reset. for about 60 seconds, the little spanner icon on the dash came on even after the serv light had gone (which went after about 10 seconds) . It was only a couple of seconds before the speedo and revometer came back too. After about 60 seconds, everything was back to normal. The computer reset caused the mileage and mpg counter to reset to 0 as well. Has anyone seen anything like this before? I can't afford a service until the end of the month, so if there's anything i can do in the mean time, anything, then i'll do it.

Many tanks for any help you guys can give
