My hades-canyon has the latest 0059 bios. I t was installed the day it was avilable. In the past few weeks/months I've noticed that anytime I go into the bios my time is way off. I continuously have to enter the current time and now the date has started to also be off.
It's gotten to the point that every time I boot my PC, I have to go into the bios first to verify that the date is correct.
Which to say the least is anniying.
I then have to go into win 10 and change the time there too.
Is there anyway to factory reset the bios to its base level and then re-flash the bios back to 0059?
what would be the procedures for this.
Also I read that the RTC battery is good for 3 years. I've had my NUC now for at least 18 to 24 months.
Is it possible the rtc battery is going bad early?
Is this eligible for an RMA to have intel replace the RTC battery or is that the end user responsibility?
Or is this some kind of bios corruption?
I don't get any RTC error messages on boot.
Any help or assistance will be greatly appreciated. TIA
I followed your instructions to the T and trying the F4 bios recovery simply does not function correctly. I have also tried the F7 bios install , both inside the bios and outside of the bios and they don't even work correctly. Also tried the .msi from within windows and it tells me it can't update itself with the same bios or something similar.
For literally months and months now I would periodically get the following:
Bios has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s). Possible cause include recent changes to BIOS, Performance Options or Recent Hardware change. Press "Y" to enter Setup or "N" to cancel attempt to boot with previous settings.
In the past year I've seen this message at least a dozen times
I notice in the bios that there is a event log that logs events to NVRAM....
would it be possible to instruct me how I might be able to see the event log entries via the uefi shell. Perhaps this will provide additional info as to what is going on.
just turned it off.
made it to step 6.
No messages ever appear. Instead it seems to power off. reboot, I see that the light on the usb stick is flashing meaning to me its being read, the blinking stops , and PC reboots itself again for a 2nd time, the usb starts flashing again like its being read, wait for 5 minutes and the blue power button is on....the green power led is on and the skull on the top is on...... I have to press and hold the blue power button to power it off......and then press it again to start the POST process for it to boot up.
Leon, sorry it's taken so long for me to reply. I've been testing my NUC out and here's where I am at:
In the upper left hand corner I get : "Bios has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s). Possible cause include recent changes to BIOS, Performance Options or Recent Hardware change. Press "Y" to enter Setup or "N" to cancel attempt to boot with previous settings.
This is the only sequence that will result in it booting up.
If I don't do 7 thru 12, it just continuously goes thru steps 1 and 4 like a Post boot loop or something.
While up in win 10 1909 latest version everything in it works fine with no issues and I keep it on from say *am to 11Pm at night and then do a shutdown/poweroff .
I performed the steps you asked me to and there is no flash even with every usb device disconnected with only the usb fob for wireless mouse/keyboard and displayport monitor. I created a new USB flash drive, copied a new downloaded copy of HN 0059 to it . and the screen just goes blank
where you never seen any of the normal flashing text, then it restarts itself into the post boot loop....
When it is turning itself off and on I can hear a loud Click, almost like a switch being turned off and on....
IS it time to RMA this?
TIA for your help and assistance on this.
1. You didn't write if you have checked to work with only one SO DIMM at time. This should be done in order to verify if the problem is not caused by failure in SO DIMM. Test each SO DIMM first in bottom slot and then in the upper slot. If still your NUC can't past the POST, go to para 2 for SSD test.
2. Power ON your NUC with SSD removed. If still you see the message "Bios has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s). ..." - the problem is in NUC hardware and it is time to ask for RMA, However, if you see only "A bootable device has not been detected", the problem is in your SSD.
3. This is the page to check your warranty coverage and to issue RMA.
I performed step 1 by using 1 sodimm in first dimm a then dimm b.....then switched them back and forth between the two dimm slots and the put the 2 back in together:
result: system posts and boots normally..... No more post boot sequence as described in last reply.
step 2: I received the A Bootable device has not been detected...
system seems to be post booting fine now.
The only difference from before and now after is I disconnect my external usb dvd/cdrom
My uefi bios system time still needs to be set everytime I boot. And in windows. I have set time auto and set time zone auto both off.
so there's some progress.
