MSY Tried Saying My CPU Pins Are Bent So No Refund, CLEARLY Not Bent. - Page 6

post #51 of 100
You don't even need your dad. Go back and ask for a manager, politely. When they start to question it, demand it, cut them off mid sentence.

Make sure next time you call them out on all of their bad advice as well. I do that at Canada Computers/Future Shop all the time and it's fun.

1. They are exactly the same CPU, both Propus 640 @ 3.0GHz never OC.

2. You don't need to clear cmos after everything. You get an error message on my motherboard asking for new CPU settings to be entered.

3. Why would I clear cmos whilst starting up the PC? The CPU failed on a computer restart, I don't think there is anybody in the world who clears their cmos on a boot.


I know all of this stuff, the point of this thread is partly me trying to prove the point you don't need to be middle-age to know how to put together a desktop. And you definitely don't need to have any more intelligence that I have to understand you are getting ripped. If I was death I could still understand he was trying to cheat me out of a replacement.

I also have the idea that maybe they work on some sort of a commission idea. - If this is true, he could be losing money by replacing my CPU. This is both immoral and stupid to try, if I can put in a CPU and answer all of his questions - it's quite obvious I'm going to know that it doesn't work and that bent pins don't effect the usage of the CPU at all.


On another note, on the 23rd of December whilst I was putting together my brother's A1X26000+ build I got the CPU chip stuck to the bottom of the fan by hard thermal paste. My immediate reaction was to grab a screw driver and prise it from the fan. I pushed the CPU in the wrong direction and the screw driver hit the top of it, where the pins where - basically crushing around 60 pins almost flat. Within 2 minutes I had them all back into their original positions and the CPU worked as good as ever with no signs of damage.

I think that the bent pin thing is mainly to make sure you haven't been messing with it, but not only is the CPU quite clearly not working for another reason, and the pins werent bent, but if it is broken and you aren't able to repair it, why does it matter what the cosmetic side of it is like? I think he made up his own rule on this one, for the commission reason mentioned earlier.

Just keep going back eventually they will fold, either that or use one of my techniques stand out front of the store showing people how they treat their customers. If you convince one person, just one person to not buy something from there of equal or greater value you win!

I only have a Motorola Milestone to take the picture, which doesn't do very well at close up, but also there are too many photos that would be needed to show that the pins are perfect. Unless you can tell me the best angle for this? If I take a photo at the side of the chip you can only see down the centre of the pins and that doesn't really prove much at all.

Yep, it's better not to fight in OCN, and fight at MSY. .

OP, I know from experience what you're saying. I once bought an joystick, I don't remember the name of it, but it had vibration. It didn't worked very good, as it didn't worked on the right half of the joystick. I went to the store, and I asked for full refund(I read the warranty terms). The guy told me "it was a problem with your USB ports". I got my dad into the store, and I got full refund in like 5 minutes.

When you're 13-17 people (at least in my country) thinks you're an ignorant, you just have to get over it, or prove them wrong in their faces

For the angle, take the picture with the camera facing the two opposite diagonal corners, and in like 1° or 2° elevation. This will make us see pins bent to sides. Do it on 4 corners. Post pics.

Serisouly though, I think you should go back to that store, and if they refuse again, just stand outside and tell them about your experience to stop customer's from going in, eventually the staff should come out and bow at you and praise you like God and will honour your return xD Worth a go

ya +1 to exactly even in my country although the people owning the store dont know much about h/w and think that they know everything and the kids are all fools(for that matter of fact im 20)....for eg yesterday i went to a store for inquiring the price of the
amd hd6950 and what he asked is" is sd6950 available" and other other person replies which one 512mb one or the 1gb one...i practically lol'ed at that situation....so my advice would also would be to take an adult with u to the store with u to support u..........and thnx atomfix for the +rep.....
