There are some similar threads on the forum about people have experienced their 4k TVs connected via HDMI flickering, or having monitors going blank for 2-3 seconds.
I have a 2 monitor set up, albeit not 4k, and after working perfectly for 4 months, one of my monitors has suddenly started to go blank for 2-3 seconds every so often. The only update I did was from BIOS 0046 to 0048. While there is not conclusive evidence that this is the issue, from my perspective it is my view that this is the cause for the situation I have. I have posted my issue in a separate thread.
If your issue is the same as mine, then unfortunately it is not possible to downgrade from BIOS 0048 back to 0046.
Like many others, I am waiting for Intel to provide a fix
I successfully downgraded to an earlier version of the BIOS - one I was using previously - it seemed to make zero difference. Perhaps the BIOS upgrade changed something that downgrading doesn't put back?
Which Nuc are you using?
I am super annoyed at this, I don't know if I'll ever buy a Nuc again - I thought drivers and reliability were supposed to be better on a machine made by Intel itself!

Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
I am sorry to hear you are having flickering issues. Can you please provide the following information to better assist you?
- Report for Intel® Graphics Drivers (save the report in a .txt file and attach it to your post)
- Intel® System Support Utility for Windows* (save the report to your computer and attach it to your post)
Turns out my BIOS downgrade didn't work because Intel in their infinite stupidity not only broke the BIOS - but made it impossible to go back to the working BIOS.
It's like Keystone Cops...
I can't do this diag stuff for a day or two because I'm away from that machine. Will do when I can but surely you should have enough information to fix this now - clearly a lot of people are having the same problem?!
