There is no way to install another operating system since it's not powering up anymore.
The power button stopped working, so I have no chance to even enter BIOS. When I press the button nothing happens.
The only unit which seems to be alive it's the Ethternet Gigabit port, I see at least lamps blinking.
Same issue here... Here's a workaround to restart the NUC:
- Unplug the power
- Plug a USB device (e.g. a keyboard)
- Plug the power cord AND at the same time, press the power button
You have to repeat this until the NUC starts
(When you plug the power cord, you should see the kbd led blink)
This is a Linux/NUC issue. This doesn't happen with Windows
Hope this help...
There is also a method of pressing the powerbutton for 4 seconds to make it into bios recovery mode from where you can enter the bios and resave its config. Note however if you press longer than 4 seconds the box will shutdown.
Seaching the web you dont seem to be the only one with a NUC that doesnt know how to return from suspend mode when running Linux:
According that last link this is a know bug addressed by a workaround described at:
Could you read through the workaround and test if this applies to your case?
Also how is your NUC connected to the monitor, through displayport or through HDMI?
Thanks for your help and hints on this issue!
I've sent my second NUC back to Amazon for replacement, unfortunately I can't try the trick suggested by OlivierG34, which seems to me promising.
@OlivierG34: Looks like you were able to reproduce it, how you did that?
@Apachez: I've read the descriptions of errors you posted, to me they look different, since people talk about that the screen power isn't coming back.
In my case I have problems to power on the NUC itself: Normally when I press the power button on the NUC first sound I can hear is the fan noise, then I see the bios screen saying things like "secure boot ..."
and after that Ubuntu boots.
In my error case I don't notice any noise of the fan or any other HW activity.
My monitor connection is: NUC [DisplyPort] -------------- [HDMI] Monitor, it's an DP to HDMI adaptor cable.
I have the exact same problem here. NUC doesn't wake up anymore from suspend mode, on Ubuntu 14.04. Had a similar issue before, returned the NUC and got a new one, but now I'm stuck again.... Isn't there any way to get the NUC started again and use it without suspend mode from now on?
got the exact same issue and today my second Intel NUC died on me. I have been running Arch Linxu almost always in suspend mode. Very frustrating this is happening!
I also had my second NUC failing. Eventually removed the tiny battery from the motherboard for a few seconds as some proposed (which was not easy btw, as its placed on the "other" side of the MB). NUC indeed starts again and I have now removed the suspend mode as an option in Ubuntu 14.04. For now works fine again, but indeed very frustrating experience and a failure of intel/Ubuntu that such a basic feature is not working at all.
I later found this tip as well and successfully executed it, now my NUC starts again as normal. Thanks for replying, now hopefully more people will find this solution faster! I will now update the bios and see if that improves anything, if it doesn't I will consider stop using suspend
Here is what solved the issue for me:
echo 0 > /sys/power/pm_async
added to /etc/rc.local
NB : the bug occured 3 times on ubuntu 14.04 x86_64. I added the workaround above 2 weeks ago. No bug since then.
Hey prigaux – thanks for your suggestion, which I implemented on my Intel NUC5i5RYH (rebadged as a System76 Meerkat), to try to eliminate its recurrent 'Ubuntu Suspend > Dead NUC' problem (under Ubuntu 15.04).
Sad to say it didn't work for me: I've experienced getting my NUC bricked by Ubuntu Suspend when /sys/power/pm_async contained '0', as well as when it contained '1'.
I've started my own thread detailing this recurrent 'Ubuntu Suspend > Dead NUC' problem:
