Hi bmakson: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® Compute Stick communities. We are sorry to hear the Intel® Compute Stick is not working properly.
For this type of scenario what we recommend is basically what you already tried, which is an Operating System recovery using the F8 options:
As an alternative we can also try a BIOS recovery to the latets version, 0035:
If the problem persists after that, then we recommend to get in contact directly with Intel in order to confirm if your unit is eligible for warranty replacement:
