Hello everyone,


I'm very thankful that this forum exists as I've tried about everything I know how to try to get this issue solved.


A couple of weeks back I purchased a (used) Intel NUC that I had planned to run headless attached to my midi keyboard. When it works, it works great. Unfortunately, seemingly at random intervals, I experience a full crash. No BSOD, just a crash/freeze. I've been running headless so I haven't been able to see what the screen looks like when it crashes until recently. I attached a monitor and I have seen (twice) a solid white screen when the computer crashes. A hard reboot is the only thing that resolves the issue. Sometimes it crashes an hour into use. Sometimes it crashes 10 hours into use. Also, I should state that when I say, "use" it typically crashes when I'm not even using it. I keep the machine on at all times so that I can sit down at my piano keyboard and use it without having to power it on.


I've tried /sfc, /dism, and /chkdsk.

I've reinstalled windows twice.

I flashed the latest bios.

I've updated all of the drivers.

Windows is up to date.


I've run the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility for stress tests of the CPU and Memory successfully for over 10 hours each so I don't believe this is a CPU or memory or heat issue? (though I don't know enough about these things to say conclusively)


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
