    NUC5i5RYH and System Event Log

    malch

      One of the BIOS screens make reference to an Event Log.

       

      How do I access that? Do I need some SEL Viewer software and, if so, which one?

       

      I am currently running Linux but tools running under DOS, EFI, Windows PE, or WIndows would still be helpful.

          Hello Malch,

           

          You can check the Event Logging at the BIOS and it will be displayed under the  Event Logging under the Main Tab.

            But this all I have. Event Logging is enabled but I've never seen a single event logged there. Nada. Nor could I find any other tabs/buttons/controls associated with Event Logging..

             

            I did try clearing the event log (In case it was full of non displayable garbage or whatever) but that didn't change anything.

             

            No startups, shutdowns, reboots, nothing?

              Hello malch,

               

              The event log will show only when there is a problem or an error occurred. It does not display when the system starts up.

                So, more of an error log than an event log :-)

                 

                Anyway, thanks for info. Sadly, that isn't going to help me track the source of the spurious wakes that have been cursing my system. On a more positive note, that MIGHT just be moot. I installed the new BIOS yesterday evening and no wakes overnight. It will tale a few more days to be sure and I'll also need to reverse some other software tweaks that I made recently. We shall see but fingers crossed that the new BIOS fixes the problem for good.
