Power on / Resume Black Screen

New Contributor I

I have a NUC 7i5BN, connected to a 4K 60Hz monitor by HDMI / Type-c to DP, run windows 10 (many version) , I have tested and can confirm that, with DCH driver or above, there will be a Power on / Resume "Black Screen" up to 3 minutes.

windows shows the output format is RGB with driver 6861 or above, but with driver 6709 or lower the output format is YCbCr420.

Everyone who have the same problem should down grade driver to to avoid this problem.

I'm not able to create new posts but I would like to share my experience with no signal from HDMI port and how I was able to fix it. So here goes:


I had the problem of getting no signal from the HDMI port with my NUC7PJYH. The OS would boot fine though. Sometimes the display worked after OS loaded but usually not. The OS booting still worked every time and I was able to make an SSH connection.

Even though the OS worked I was never able to get to BIOS or see any BIOS related information. Clearing CMOS or changing displays, RAMs, HDMI cables or SSDs did nothing. Removing the SSD or USB items or pressing F2 in the boot did nothing. However what finally worked was this:

  1. Turn of the NUC.
  2. Install display to HDMI2 port.
  3. Press and hold power button for 3 seconds but less than 4 seconds.
  4. While holding down the power button, move HDMI cable from HDMI2 port to the HDMI1 port. Do this within 3 seconds but only after the light on the power button is turned on.
  5. You should now see the power button menu from which you can access visual BIOS.

Now I made some changes to the BIOS but while attempting to save the changes the NUC froze. However after this, the display has worked every time. I'll now attempt to get the BIOS working as it did before.

Can someone with the same issues try this and report the results? Of course it's quite hard to do this all in 3 seconds (and under 4) with only two arms.


Additional information, OS is the newest Debian and BIOS is the latest one. OS shouldn't matter though because the problem occured right after pressing the power button.
