In the small group of computers I manage I frequently see this warning in the event log: . Sometimes this warning happens 20 to 30 times a day. I have attached a screenshot from Event Viewer of one of the computers experiencing this problem. I usually come across this error on a computer that is having problems connecting to network drives. Usually this error is accompanied by a
Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection - Network link is disconnected message in Event Viewer. I am trying to figure out what is causing this error. Any ideas?
HP Compaq 6200 Pro Small Form Factor
Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz
Intel Q65 Express chipset supporting Intel 2nd generation Core processors and featuring Intel HD Graphics)
Intel 82579LM GbE integrated network connection
I should have figured this out A LOT sooner, but after updating the chipset and wired network drivers on downloadcenter.intel.com the problem has completely disappeared.
