How would you be able to tell when a solid state drive fails? I've only had this machine since 2021.

Have you checked what the state of your system drive is? And by that I mean using the utility of your choosing to look at SMART data and/or do a quick scan.
There is at least a decent chance that your system drive is in the process of failing, as that's one reason that you would be asked for Windows Media when attempting to boot. The other could be a corrupt boot record, but I'd definitely suspect a drive that's on its way out first.
