Couple of ideas for you:
- Be sure you are using the AC power adapter plugged into a wall outlet; do not try powering the device from a USB port. We've seen odd boot issues when powering from USB.
- Before trying to access the recovery partition via the F8 key, make sure you do NOT have an SD card or a USB portable thumb drive attached to the Compute Stick. We've seen these cause recovery failures.
Need replacement ASAP. Purchased this on 28-07-2015, date of manufacture 06/2015. Yesterday it hung and when restarted it would never boot. It stays on boot screen for a few minutes and then screen blacks out. Tried "F8" recovery option, during boot is prints "Please Wait" for a few minutes and again the screen blacks out. Looks like this stick has gone bad too early. I have been only running media server on this as it is of not much use being extremely slow. However, I spent 10k Indian Rupees on this and therefore I want a brand new replacement unit. Probably the worst product I have ever seen - going bad within a few months of minimal usage.

Why couldn't I register?: because when I tried to register giving my e-mail ID, I never got a response mail from Intel! Tried two mail IDs: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org - check spam etc no use.
However, I was able to register and get confirmation mail for the community forums: that's why I'm here.
