was i scammed by newegg?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
i bought this motherboard -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/ImageG...20ATX%20AMD%20
Motherboard
and when i got it, it had no place to connect a cd drive to. (as far as i can tell anyway) The motherboards definitely look similar, but mine is missing the ide/pata connector, and the fdd connector.

im still new to this, so i might be missing something somewhere..but any help would be nice.

It sounds like they sent you the wrong board or a different revision of the board that you purchased. I'm sure Newegg will refund/exchange your purchase since the item at hand isn't what was described.

maybe the gigabyte failed and sent you one that was incomplete.. you should return it to newegg. they're a very respectable company and i doubt it was there fault.

Pics please.. also NewEgg would NEVER scam their customers. Sometimes orders get sent out wrong.. blame the workers at the warehouse.

Ya, I'm sure Newegg is down to their last dollar, so they scammed you by sending the wrong board which they make more money by selling. Personally, I've never heard of them scamming anyone and they win customer service awards on a regular basis, but you however, they decided to scam.
