      I said 30, because that's what most online computer parts retailers give. I feel that it is EXTREMELY lenient for DOA.

          Yeah, but he said 6 in the other thread. He can't make up his mind.

            ya sorry borris i have to side with greenman on this one, while i believe you are telling the truth about the condition of the board, if I had reason to suspect it was damaged i would have tested it out sooner.

            I would personally be supprised if a DOA from a private seller lasted more then 2 weeks. I have noticed many ebay ads that state DOA timeframes of a few days.

              I tested it a month ago. I was just waiting to get unbanned (which obviously didn't happen ). When we're talking about 3 months, its 3 months after I bought it and started complaining.

                The condition of the board looked fine except for the metal part that connects to the back of the computer. No missing components or anything. I did have a thourough examination of it when I received it.

                He did not state a timeframe. DOA means working once you plug it in, unless you somehow physically damaged it, which I did not do.

                  No it doesn't. It means Dead On Arrival, as in when it gets to you, not whenever you feel like plugging it in.

                    If you read my other post, there was no way of testing it, as I didn't have the motherboard, ram, or HD.

                      If you read my other post, That doesn't matter. It's not the seller's fault that you let it sit there for so long. It's your responsibility. Grow up, suck it up and drive on.

                        Hi. I'm interested in the audigy. How about $20 shipped. Paypal ready

                        My prices are + shipping and packaging, how's $25 shipped?
                        Does it have the gold plated connectors?

                        yup
                        Does it work? My last audigy 1 card died on me for now reason.

                        haha, yes it works fine
                        Found this on a backup CD. Good thing I save all of my PMs

                        So yeh, he said it works. Before you say anything, no, I am not confusing my dead audigy with his. His had gold plated connecters, while the dead one had just plastic ones. The computer refuses to even boot with the dead one. The computer does not recognize greenman100's audigy at all.

                        Lets try to keep this thread clean of comments by adults acting as 13 year olds. I kept my posts in the old thread clean of cursing, and its a shame that members on these forums cannot do the same in return.

                          I voted as I stated in the other thread. 30 days is the maximum.

                          Also, this thread is to see what the majority of the members of this board deem DOA to mean without a specified time. Please keep this thread on topic.

                            My post basically says that besides the DOA warranty he offered, he also said the card works [period]. So we can stop the whole discussion of what DOA means. This makes life much simpler, doesn't it?

                              Well according to two polls, you took too long to contact the seller and are not entitled to a refund. This of course is based of the options of the majority of members here that have taken part in one or both of the polls. If the seller decides to refund your money, he has gone above and beyond any obligation.
