My NUC8i7HVK did a very good job before. after i pluged in an eink book( i v used it before for several times), then i noticed that NUC crashed, couldnt resp to key and mouse. then i press the power button 4 sec to shut it down, and then reboot. But after that ,the NUC only lights up the green LED , the toper LED, and the fans, but no output signal for screen , no "Intel NUC" shows up as usual, no sounds for ear phone, no resp to key and mouse, only can be shut down by pressing the power button for 4 sec. And i v unpluged the BIOS battery connector for 15 mins , removed the BIOS sec switcher , reboot, and removed memory cards, SSD cards, reboot, all the same. what can i do with it now? can any hero help me? so depressed ...
- It is not clear for me what event caused the NUC failure? Can you explain better?
- What happens when you power your NUC, with Yellow Security Jumper remover and SSD removed? After 30 -60 seconds you should see Configuration Menu (see the attached image).
- Actually, i dont know what event caused the failure, the last thing was that i pluged in a kindle like device with USB., But , that was happened after i left the NUC turned on for hours, when i came back to continue work with the NUC , i pluged in the device first , then noticed that the NUC had no response (but the screen was still showing the desktop), so i m not sure whether the NUC had crashed down before the pluging process or after it .
- i v tried again , removed the yellow jumper, SSD, restored the memory, power on ,but stll no signal out for the display screen, i v waited for a pretty long time, cant see the configuration menu, i v tried HDMI and DP. i m sure the display screen and the wires are all good for work.
- I don't know if the Bios was corrupted or it is hardware failure
- I suggest that first try to operate your NUC with only one SO DIMM at time. First remove the upper SO DIMM and check if there is a change. Then remove the SO DIMM from the bottom slot and reinstall the SO DIMM removed from upper slot back to this slot.
- If still your NUC is not working (i.e. the problem is not from the failed SO DIMM), you may try "Blind" Bios Recovery with the Security Jumper Removed method:
- Prepare USB stick fully formatted to FAT32 with Bios file HN0059.bio . Format your USB with Quick Format option unchecked. Do not format your USB in MAC (OS) or Linux machine. Use Windows.
- Disconnect the power adapter and remove the upper cover and the LED panel from your NUC. Disconnect the LED panel connector before panel removing.
- Remove the yellow security jumper (see the Technical Product Spec, para. 188.8.131.52, page 46 )
- Insert the USB with the HN0059.bio file into front right USB port with yellow color.
- Reconnect the power adapter and power ON the NUC. Wait 30 sec - 2min. The Recovery process will start automatically and will end after 2 -5 minutes.
- When bios recovery is completed (about 5 minutes), switch the power OFF, remove the power adapter and replace the Security Jumper (pins 1-2). Reinstall the LED panel and the upper cover.
- Reconnect the Power Adapter and power ON your NUC.
