I updated the BIOS as per recommendation and the message screen stated that everything went perfectly. When it had fiished it rebooted automatically and then never came back.
I have tried removing the power cable. If I press the power button it lights up blue and after a whle goes back to red. If hold it for 3 seconds to get to te booot menu it also reverts to red after a while. No messages are posted at all in eiher case.
The updated BIOS is version BN0076.
I have never set any custom settings.
Device is Intel NUC7I7BNH Micro Intel® 3500 MHz SOC , IRIS PLUS 650.
I have 32GB of Crucial RAM and a 1TB Samsung M.2 SSD. I have run test programs on both of these before and they passed without errors.
The OS is Win 10 Pro.
Can anyone tell me if it's possible to revive this NUC?
Many thanks for your time in advance, Ben.
Hello @Ben ,
Thank you for that very clear answer.
I have followed these instructions. At Step 4 I release the Power Button after 3 seconds (it goes bright red), and then it reverts to blue. I am still not seeing anything on the screen. I have repeated Step 4 with slightly shorter and longer times to double check it's not the delay.
I am on Dispay Port as I don't have an HDMI cable, but I am guessing that this can't be connected to this problem as that part is governed by hardware.
I usually use a Bluetooth keyboard, but have plugged in a hardwired USB keyboard just to elimenate any wireless issues.
I can't think of anything else to try.
Many thanks for taking the time.
Thank you for that extra information.
It took about 2 hours of fiddling with cables and repeated attempts, but just as I was about to give up it worked.
I coukd see that it was accessing the USB, but it would not display even on HDMI - I kept trying just in case it was iterating interanally. I repeated the same sequence as you descibed, and just as I was about to call it a day, it booted into Windows.
I think there is something wrong with my NUC as it has been incredibly unreliable and crashes almost daily. I have run RAM and SSD tests, which all pass, and I have reinstalled, but the reliability remains fairly tragic.
Anyway, many many thanks for all your advice and much appreciattion for your time.
Thank you for that suggestion.
I went to the link, but it implies that only Win10 Apps that are installed via the Windows Store will be retained. All my Apps are manually installed. I don't want to do this if I will lose all my Apps, as if that's the case I might as well do a clean install fresh start.
Is there anothe method to repair Windows that won't remove my Apps, or have I misunderstood the instructions?
Thank you for your time in advance.
Kind regards, Ben.
I don't know where you found that after performing an In place Upgrade, you will your installed programs will be removed. This will happen if you will Reset or Refresh your PC. The upgareding is same as upgrading for example from Windows 1803 to Windows 1809. Any way, if you are afraid, you may create an backup (an image) of your disk before starting. Please read the description in the beginning of this tutorial:
"The options above are great for what they are intended for, but you could also do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything other than all installed Windows Updates."
