I recently purchased and assembeled a new i7 NUC kit. It was running great for a week but then I powered it down, put it in my bag and took it home to continue work. When I got home and plugged it in, it won't power on. No LED codes, no anything. The machine has been GREAT up until this point. I had a few issues with the correct order of installing the drivers, but after I got the OS installed and drivers loaded, it has been ROCK SOLID. Now it is just DEAD.
I have tried a different power adapter. Reset the CMOS. Reseated all chips. Still nothing.

It makes no sense why it would just stop working after being fine.
In regards the issue with the Intel® NUC Kit 5i7RYH; according to your workaround using a second power supply, testing with minimum configuration and the results: no lights and fan not spinning. The next step is the replacement of the unit.
Please contact our Customer support team and request it.
We will need to collect the SA number and Serial Number of the NUC; they are on the bottom of the chassis.
