What should I do with this pos?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright, I just got my one video card (MSI 8600gts) back from a RMA and I've been using it in SLI for the past week or so. Now just the other day Windows decided that giving me a black screen rather than boot up is a cool thing to do. I go ahead google the problem online and I decide to take out the card in the second PCI-E slot (the card that I just got back from RMA). I take it out hook my computer up and everything works fine. Just 15 minutes ago I decided that it'd be a good idea to confirm if this card works. I go ahead and replace my card that is in working condition with the RMA card and I turn on my computer. When the computer boots I just get a black screen but I check my HDD disk activity light on my case and it's flashing normally. I took the card out and put in my working card and turn on the computer. The computer boots normally. End of story. *this is my sig rig*

Now I ask, what should I do? I know that I'll have to contact MSI again about this but I'm thinking that I might have to call them this time rather than just do a regular RMA request. Would it be possible for me to get a direct refund from MSI or will I just have to live it out, RMA, and sell on eBay? I am looking to upgrade to a 8800gt or a 9xxx card.
