If your Intel® NUC Board or Kit doesn't start properly, follow the troubleshooting steps below, in order.
Check the power LED on the top or front of the Intel NUC chassis.
|Power LED state||Possible causes||Troubleshooting steps|
|Power LED is OFF||Bad power source or defective Intel NUC|| |
|Power LED is blinking in a pattern of three||Memory module is wrong voltage, incompatible, or defective|| |
|Power LED is blinking in a different pattern||Computer is sleeping or overheating||See Blink Codes and Beep Codes for Intel NUC to identify patterns and solutions.|
|Power LED is ON (solid color)||Monitor input source is set wrong, video cable is defective, video adapter/dongle is interfering|| |
If BIOS settings were changed, revert to default values:
- Press F2 during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
- Press F9 to set defaults.
- Press F10 to save and exit BIOS.
Determine if the boot problem is due to overheating.
The following symptoms can occur if installed components in the Intel NUC overheat:
- The system won't boot.
- The system randomly shuts down.
If any of the overheating symptoms appear, check the following:
- The Intel NUC is on a hard surface.
- The ventilation holes in the back and bottom of the chassis aren't blocked.
- The Intel NUC is set vertically on its left or right side (for better airflow to the bottom ventilation holes).
Try a BIOS Recovery.
