Whats the current BIOS version read as in GPU-Z? Here is a thread at nvforums with 3 links to 3 BIOS versions for the GTX 275 for XFX:
Maybe try NVflash with the BIOS that matches your current BIOS and see if that fixes it.
Hopefully you have a better experience if sending the card back. I didn't have to send mine in. I just needed a stock cooler replacement so they sent one out right away. Of course FedEx stuck it to me stating signature was required. On the 3rd delivery attemp I had left a note on the door with my signature stating they could leave the package on the porch. The delivery guy left yet another door tag, X'ing the signature required field and circled it.
Thankfully enough, I informed XFX and they are just going to ship another cooler ensuring that FedEx is aware that no signature is required.
