After only 3 months of use, now Stuck on this blue screen and cannot boot from a USB drive. I was told to pay for shipping to china address and have to buy another SSD from them that may also defective again. Over $200 ($1,572HKD) spent as a backer on Indiegogo (Contribution ID 1741).

Hi ndy,

Welcome to the recurring M2 Sata SSD problem on this pico PC.

The "blue screen" as shown is the BIOS. (Since you didn't seem to know it, I advise you to have someone do the rest).

Like many, I had a SSD fail very quickly (3 days and 4 or 5 boots for my part).

I replaced it with another one bought on the internet**, because their request/solution to send the unit back to china, at your expense, declaring that it's a bluetooth speaker and not as a "PC", with a return delay depending on the customs services stinks like shit. -> https://xdo.ai/forums/gadgets-stuff/after-5-months-i-only-have-an-empty-box-after-sent-to-rma

The best is to change the M.2 SATA*** SSD (Very important: a "M.2 SATA 2240 NGFF" and not a "M.2 2240 NVMe"!!!)
This requires reinstalling Windows 10 of course.

** For my part the "1TB M.2 SATA 2242" works very well since its change at the end of January, here : https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/1005004270620578.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.main.1.4e57c61ic61i1s&algo_pvid=d58cbdbb-9479-4453-8319-7db095dc0bd0&algo_exp_id=d58cbdbb-9479-4453-8319-7db095dc0bd0-0&pdp_npi=3%40dis%21EUR%21110.66%2143.16%21%21%21%21%21%40210217c716839475980756697d073c%2112000030805756026%21sea%21FR%212959938288&curPageLogUid=dGSvInNIpmva
