Another problem I noticed and which is very annoying is the screen sporadically becomes black for a second on my Intel NUC. It does not seem the graphic driver crashes as there is no error message by Windows and the screen is only black for a second or two – after that all is as before.
Model: NUC7i5BNH (Date of Manufacture: 06/2017), SA J3**** - 305
SSD: Samsung 960 Evo M.2
RAM: 8GB Crucial DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM CL15 Single (CT8G4SFD8213)
Monitor 1: Dell P2715Q (3840x2160), DisplayPort over USB-C
Monitor 2: Dell U2715H (2560x1140), HDMI
Drivers: Up to date. I use BIOS version 0062.
I understand that currently you are experiencing an issue with dual monitor as it seems that the screens go black.

Thank you for your response,
I can see that the problem is not related to the NUC hardware then since 2 different units have been tested. Since this is the case, I want you to try a driver version older than the one you currently have, this is for testing purposes.
Let us try with this version first, please download the ".zip" file from the link below:
Once the file is downloaded, follow the steps below in order to rollback the driver:
1 - Unzip the file to a designated location or folder.
2 - Right-click Windows Start icon and open Device Manager.
3 - Click Yes when prompted for permission from User Account Control.
4 - Expand the Display adapters section.
5 - Right-click the Intel® graphics entry and select Update Driver Software.
6 - Click "Browse my computer for driver software".
7 - Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
8 - Click "Have Disk".
9 - Click "Browse".
10 - Access the designated location or folder, and access a folder called "Graphics".
11 - Select the file type "information" ".INF"
12 - Click Open, then click OK, and finally click Next. Drivers are now being installed.
13 - Reboot your computer
Let us know the outcome please.
thank you for your fast answer, I really appreciate that.
Unfortunately the new NUC has died a few minutes ago. It suddenly turned of after running about 6 hours and when I tried to start it again this happened:
Now the NUC does not react at all when pressing the power button.
Thank you for keeping us updated about this issue. I hope it gets resolved when you receive the new unit. If it is not resolved, you can definitely contact us, and we will be glad to provide a solution to this issue as soon as possible.
