So we've had some brownouts this last Saturday afternoon, and then a total blackout that lasted (in my case) for nearly 48 hours. Plenty of reports of confirmed tornadoes. I count myself lucky and have been spared the worst - I don't have to go very far to see some rather impressive damage.

But to jump straight to the point - despite being set up with a UPS, one of my Intel NUCs no longer powers on. The LED built into the power button blinks once every (maybe) 2.5 seconds, but it otherwise does not power on at all. I've tried long presses, short presses, disconnecting for 30 seconds, disconnecting for many hours in fact...but the same thing occurs; the power button blinks once every 2-3 seconds but nothing happens. Like it was stuck in sleep mode and doesn't want to come out of it.

The hard drive still works fine, and is now in fact running in another system. But I'm left wondering if that system is truly fried. If it was, I wouldn't expect the LED on it to blink in this way.

Thoughts? Options?
