    Fan not working? Taking forever to do things

    TheWizard

      I have had my Compute Stick for about 5 months now, I noticed today (after taking it out of storage) that the compute stick became fairly hot, I then noticed the fan was no longer spinning.  Is this a common issue with this platform?

       

      I also noticed now that the fan no longer spins, the unit takes a VEEEEEEERY long time to load the OS or even restore it.  I attempted to upgrade from 8.1 to 10 and it took nearly 6 hours.  I stopped the upgrade and attempted to downgrade and 'restore' the compute stick back to the original 8.1 OS and that too took forever....

       

      Is the hardware just gone or is there anything that I can do to fix this? I really don't want to RMA it...
