NUC5CPYH: No video signal


From today all the video signals of my Intel NUC 5CPYH have stopped to work.

I've tried both HDMI and VGA, with 3 different cables, and two different monitors, that perfectly work with other laptop.

The Intel NUC has been bough on Aug, 2015, it has a Celeron N3050 a Samsung 250GB SSD and HyperX Impact HX316LS9IB/8 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L CL9 SODIMM 1.35V RAM.

  • I have a linux distro installed on it without any remote access, therefore no way to use it anymore.
  • I can see that the OS is loaded as there is activity on HDD LED during boot
  • Tried to access blindly the BIOS with F2: nothing happens on the screen
  • Tried to disable FastBoot blindly with power button sequence and F3, but nothing happens.
  • Please note that the monitor doesn't receive any signal at all, it's not a black screen.

As I've paid 172.00 Euro, only for the barebone, failing after only 3 years, I feel a little bit frustrated and disappointed. I'm pretty sure it's a hardware related issue.

How can Intel solve this issue?
