Hello, everyone. I'm experiencing an unusual problem, at least it seems unusual to me.
About a week ago and continuing to today, i started getting the following messages on my computer:
Checking media presence.
Start PXE over IPv6.
This is on a computer that is 3 1/2 years old. As i mentioned above, the problem started about a week ago.
I've done some research on this and noted that others have experienced this problem also, but they experienced it when the computer was booting up. I see this message after the computer sits idle for an period of time, like overnight as an example. I will work on the computer during the evening. Leave it on overnight. The next morning I see the messages on the screen. Basically, it happens when the computer sits idle for at least a few hours.
When this occurs, I can't do anything with the computer. I can't reboot it with CNTRL ALT DELETE. My only option is to power it down and then power it back up again. At that point, it becomes usable.
I have absolutely no clue what is going on with this situation. I hope others can provide guidance.
