It seems we have a similar problem. Out of the two boards we have, the first
one stopped working yesterday. Both blue LEDs are lit, but there's no video
output at all, USB and Ethernet are also dead. 

What procedure do you recommend, should we return the board or is it
possible to do this reflash? I couldn't find any instructions or firmware
for the MAX board anywhere on Intel's site.

On another note, I had to go through several monitors until I found one that
would accept the video signal output by the board (apparently it's 720p @
60Hz). Perhaps a more universal video mode as default would be more useful?
