I have a Intel Compute Stick (stk1aw32sc) that likes to do periodic black screens for 2 seconds at a time.
It gets worse when I play a Microsoft game that has daily challenges.
Is there any way to solve this issue?
Thank you for joining the community.
In order to help you better, I would like to gather more information about the configuration you have on the computer.

Steps to save the report:
What is the model of the display and type of video connection? (if there is any video cable)
Actually, my GF MAY have figured out the problem.
We are running the compute stick using a power board with 3.2 Amp output USB.
If she is correct that is not enough power to run it?
DarkSamus: We can try a BIOS update on the stick to the latest version 0040:
Also we can try to re-install the chipset driver:
As well as the graphics driver:
In regard to your question, if you are referring to the power supply, based on the Technical Product Specifications of the stick, it uses a 5V 3A AC to DC power adapter so it should be enough, but we recommend to use the power supply that came with the stick, page 19:
If you are not referring to the power supply, please provide the model of the power board.
Also, do you have the option to test a different HDMI cable?
Do you have the chance to use a different monitor/TV?
Completed all the above steps, problem is still there but not as severe.
I don't have another TV or HDMI cable to test with.
Honestly though, I am happy and will see what I can do to get an official power supply for my Compute Stick.
