    Actually, the more you talk, the more obvious it is that you have a very slippery grip on reality. Go wake up your mom. I'm sure she'll tell you that you're right, and make the bad man give you your money back.

The fact remains that it is now three (two, whatever, longer than DOA means) months later, and the seller is not obligated to help you out. It is a fact you need to learn to deal with. If you want a superior return policy then next time buy your computer parts (or anything else) from a retailer and not a private party.

    DOA = Dead On Arrival.

    ie dead when it arrives not 2 or 3 months down the road, not even 1 month, hell not even 1 week. It is Dead on arrival.

    Now granted you should have some time to test it as it might arrive on a day when you are busy or out of the house. Therefore I would allow a couple of days.

    The excuse that you have nothing to test it on is crap, if you order something to replace something you have something to test it on. hell if you have nothing to test it on, don't buy it.

    geez all this over $25, £15.

    I voted 5 days before reading the thread. That should mean I'm fairly detached from the situation. (Some would also say, rather cruelly I feel, reality)
    Anyway, after reading the thread I feel forced to comment!
    DOA means Dead On Arrival. Test this item immediately, or as reasonably soon as possible. 5 days sounds reasonable to me. 2 months does not. That's the poll out of the way.
    9 weeks had passed between the seller warranting and the buyer testing the item. 8 weeks before testing the item had been in the custody of a third party, namely the shipper. Surely all parties should be now involved in this discussion? Or perhaps we should refer to this post. Lessons to be learned...
    I can’t honestly be botherd to write anymore, sorry.
