          Look in the Windows Event Log and see what errors are listed there. If this is the WHEA error, you likely will need to have your unit replaced. If this is the case, call Intel Customer Support to set up the RMA...

            I did as you said an found all the critical errors of shutting down was due to


            EventID 41

            Task 63

            I didn't see anything about WHEA error. So not sure on that.

            I did check the memory an all was good.

            Anything else I can check or should I contact support as you said.

            Thanks for the help.

            Here is a detailed view of what the last shut down showed if this helps.

              Hello Eddie:


              I looked for the error Event ID 41, and I found a site from Microsoft, where they suggest some steps that might be helpful in fixing this problem:




              Also, the Windows® Event Viewer besides the error event ID, also provides some more details that might be useful in fixing this problem.


              Could you please get a screen shoot of that, and post it on this thread so we can check those details?


              Press WinLogo
              Press R on the keyboard and select run
              Type: eventvwr
              Double click on: Windows Logs
              Double click on: Application.


              Please search for the crashing error and take a screen shot of that.


              Another option will be to reinstall Windows® from scratch, but that will be the last thing to try.

                Hi Alberto.

                Thanks for taking a look at this. I sure like my nuc an its the first of I hope many I try.

                Here is the screen shot of what you wanted. I pulled it from system instead of application. Like you said sure don't want to reinstall if possible. Please let me no

                if anything I can try or other information needed.

                It happened again at 1016 this morning so this is a shot of it.


                Thanks so much

                  Hello Eddie:

                  Thank you very much for that information.

                  We wanted to confirm the source of the problem, and based on the screen shot that you gave us, the source in fact is kernel-power.

                  So, this is a Windows® error:
                  “The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first”
                  “The error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly”

                  Maybe there was power outage, or a power failure that might be the cause for this problem.

                  That type error is not related to the NUC, even if we get into the BIOS, there are no options that we can change to fix the problem.

                  However, you can always try a BIOS update to the latest version of the NUC which is 0045:


                  Here you have the instructions of how to do a BIOS update using the F7 method, the .BIO file is the one on the link above:


                  Also, I found a Youtube video with some suggestions and steps to try in order to fix it:


                  That might help, and maybe the problem will get fixed.
