well it was the day befor yesterday and i was playing around with my computer and all of a sudden the computer froze. i rebooted to see that the screen was all messed up. just a lot of ramdom colors and i couldn't see anything. well the computer boots when it enters windows it just turns off the video card. well guess what my cards warranty ended TWO NIGHTs ago. and I didn't have a working computer to RMA untill Today.
The card is a radeon Sapphire 9000 pro oem.
last but not least, i know that all cards usally have some sort of sticker that says do not remove or you void warranty. i bought this card from newegg.com and it dosn't have a single sticker on it what should i do?. am i SOS or is thier something i could do about this.
Oh man i hope the RMA goes through.
