My NUC is almost dying and I'd like to keep it alive. I saw some people online having some similar issues, but no solution shared.
Most of the time I can't boot my NUC, it simply does not respond.
If I let it sit for some hours unplugged from the power, it will eventually boot, but normally, I can see only a green light on the motherboard, but no response from the power button, no fan no nothing.
When I manage to boot, it works normally, no overheating or hangs. But when I shut it down it acts like that.
I tested the power unit, it is outputting 19v
There's no problem with the power button, even if it was, my NUC is configured to turn on after a power failure
After plugging the power the green light on the motherboard turns on
I tried unplugging the memory and the m.2 storage
No fan spinning
Simple answer: don't shut it down.
You obviously have a component that is on the verge of failing and only when it is heated a certain amount will it work. These are the kinds of issues that can be nigh unto impossible to track down. You have to replace components one at a time until you identify the failing component. If it's a device on the motherboard, well...
