We have multiple Win 10 machines around the house. This morning we found the computers would not connect to the internet for no known reason, so we rebooted the DSL modem and router. My Win 10 laptop connected to the internet, but another Win 10 desktop would NOT connect to the internet. That machine gave the error message "Waiting for sens".
It appears to finally finish the boot, (still not connected to the internet). Within just a couple of minutes (or less - not long enough to do anything) I get the message that "in the next minute, the computer will be rebooted".
Then the machine waits 1 minute and reboots, going back to the "Waiting for sens" message, etc. I'm just caught in what I used to call a "do loop" (old programmer).
I'm not sure what to do. I have not installed any new programs, have not made any changes to the machine, have not had any BSOD. Basically this machine has not ever been a problem machine. (Dell that is about 3 years old.)
I'm at a loss as to what my options are, besides just rebuilding the machine. It's used every day. I didn't notice yesterday that it had any updates from Microsoft.
I have googled this issue for a few hours this morning. It seems to have happened to many SERVERS, not desktops. I haven't seen any fixes that actually have been reported to work for this problem.
Thoughts before I rebuild the machine?
