BOTH of my computers dead in a day?? - Page 4

post #31 of 34
About the RMA, most companies just require the information from the board, like serial number. I bought my motherboard from Newegg, and RMA'd it with ASUS twice. All they ask for is the serial number, and what went wrong. It is waranteed through ASUS for 3 years, and was covered by newegg for the first 30 days. Just because you bought the board from here doesnt mean you cant RMA it.

Same with ram, and other components. I bought ram from buy.com, and have to RMA it through crucial. All they asked for is the serial number, and what went wrong. It never hurts to call them and see for yourself. Its better than assuming you cant, and going out and buying 2 new motherboards.

RMA in the US... but in some countries is via the retailer!

But, maybe they both died because they shortcutted somehow because theres maybe too much 'humidity' >_> i know it doesnt make sense how i say it, my english sucks.. the pc's are not in the kitchen and not near AC's or a deep freeze or anything else?
I get what you're saying, and the answer is no.

Also, do think that both may have 2 different causes for the same symptom. I will subscribe to this thread. Try to help you find the solution.
Thanks man. Nope, solid steady lights as allways.
