I purchased the Intel compute stick (BOXSTCK1A32WFC) approximately a year ago. I had difficulty getting it set up, but eventually it began to work after advice from the Intel technical support. Based on the advice from technical support I set Windows not to automatically update. It has worked fine for several months, then it has set idle and not used for the past six months. This week I tried to use it and it is freezing when video playback from Amazon Prime running movies, it seems to run 8-12 minutes or so, and then it bricks up and the only way to get any response is to completely unplug all cables and reboot. I am reluctant to upgrade the windows version as it appears from discussions on the support community that upgrading cause all kinds of problems. Can you help me figure out a way to run an Amazon prime video without interruption?
Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
At this point, I suggest you to report this issue to Amazon and see if the Intel® Compute stick is able to work with this unit.
Honestly, I have not seen this issue with this Intel® Compute stick, do you have the latest graphics driver with the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25647/Intel-HD-Graphics-Driver-for-Intel-Compute-Stick-STC... Intel® Compute stick.
Update the BIOS; you can download the latest BIOS version here:

Make sure your internet connection is working correctly; maybe you can try resetting the router if it is possible.
