Help Alfa 156 Went all stiff on me!!!

Hi everyone i was driving along today about 30mph and the car went all stiff! power steering virtually unsteerable! so i pulled over opened up the bonnet but couldnt see any problems.
So i turned the car back on and no problem at all! power steering fine! and drove the car for about twenty minutes with no problem!
How strange!!!!
Does anyone have any idea what that means? i had the aux belt changed last week could that be linked!

The PAS pump is driven by the aux belt...

Check the fluid level, turn the wheel lock-to-lock a few times, and check it again. They usually make a din if the fluid's low though.

Was the aux tensioner changed at the same time?
