Hi, Rebecca12, Thank you very much for joining the Intel® Compute Stick communities.
In order to try to fix this problem, we can try a BIOS update:
This is the .BIO file needed, version 0050, latest:
Also, we can try to reset the stick:
Look for “settings”
Then “Update and Security”
And then choose the option to “Reset this PC” and keep the files.
Please let me know the results of trying the steps above.
Any further questions, please let me know.
I have updated to bios 50 but still I get blue screen sometimes

this is my 3rd M3 stick, I returned 2 back to Amazon because they both had different issues, so my 3rd stick I got from another online shop and it had this blue screen issue every now and then but other issues from my previous sticks are not present on this 3rd one so I'll bare with this blue screen rather than replacing it for the 4th time, I just hope Intel fixes these issues for future compute sticks.
Rebecca12, Thank you very much for letting us know that information. We are really sorry to hear that the problem remains with the stick and it is still showing blue screens randomly.
Just to let you know, I will send your comments to the proper department so they can be aware of your feedback and suggestions.
Any other inquiry, do not hesitate in contact us again.
