I'm back with a new stick (STK1AW32SC). Right out of the box this one has fewer issues than the last (I didn't need to reinstall Remote Keyboard on the PC). I was also able to get to Threshold 2, so I'm running the current version of Windows. That said, one problem still remains… The overscan issue that I had with the last one persists. However, this time the update to Intel HD Graphics driver v 22.214.171.12464 didn't correct the problem. Changing the scaling settings (under Display, then General Settings) has no effect whatsoever no matter the setting. Any ideas on why this would be when it worked fine on the last stick? I don't even have any other software installed yet, only Microsoft and Intel software and their updates… I also noticed that if I change the screen resolution the text changes sizes but the icons and other graphics don't. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Let's try to narrow down the issue. Please update the BIOS to the latest version 0019 then, get into the BIOS, reset the settings with F9 and save changes.
Please use your stick with Windows® 10 default settings for a while 1 or 2 days and let me know how it works.
Eureka, Mike! Got it to work by doing the following:
Once you get this thing to work it's a fabulous little media PC , thanks!
I spoke too soon. Now there are two other issues: First, the System HALT! at boot is back (every fifth or sixth boot maybe). I thin this is a BIOS 0019 issue because that happened after I installed 0019 last time. Whatever. It works, I'll wait until the next BIOS update and flash that. The bigger issue is that after the BIOS update I seem to have lost about 3GB of space. There is nothing in the Windows.old folder anymore and I was saving that just in case. Now I no longer have the old Windows to revert to nor do I have the 3GB it was occupying! See attached for a screen shot of my disk space and programs... Any ideas to recover this
The BIOS is kept on an eprom chip of the stick; the amount of memory inside the eMMC is not affected. The STK1AW32SC comes with almost 19GB of space.
Are you still using Windows® 10 32bit or updated to 64bit?
Nope. Still running 32bit. How many GB should be free after Threshold 2? Isn't there about 3GB missing here with only 1.16 GB of programs installed? I have nothing saved internally...
