Ever get burned by a company?

My serial number sticker came off my video card (But hey, I can glue it back on!), and for a while now the RAM in this thing has been kicking the bucket. The screen will get covered in green lines, and if you DARE log in to Windows, all of your icons will have lines on them FOREVER!

So, it happened again this morning, and I waited for Windows to finish booting up. I then promptly switched the power supply's switch to the "O" position.

I've done it a million times before, and now I lost a file, and I'm stuck running 98 Lite for a while. 2000 Pro won't boot, all thanks to Sapphire!

God, I fucking hate these people. Anyone else here get burned on a crappy product?

I had shitloads of new, fresh porno in my Windows directory, too :(.

The only crap peice of hardware I have ever owned was a POS soundcard that I had back when I got my first computer. Damn thing was always conflicting with something on my computer; it drove me insane!

Sorry about your Videocard; pretty soon you'll be able to put all of that pr0n on your PDA or Cellphone, and won't have to worry about videocards. :D

Haha, yeah...I'm going to call up Sapphire later today.

Hopefully they will upgrade me to a newer model, because their newer models rock.

Haha...I have the Sapphire Atlantis 9700 Pro.

It would be a great card if they didn't put that shitty EtronTech memory on it.
