Motherboards of Invention
Well, heck. I put in an RMA on the motherboard and CPU last night, and called today to see if they could expedite replacements, but there's a snag...

Turns out, I can only get expedited replacements if do the return as a refund, and then order new items. Otherwise, I have to wait three to five business days from date of physical return to get a replacement shipped out to me.

Unfortunately, the CPU can only be returned for a refund within seven days of purchase... and waiting for the video card alone has pushed me beyond that window.*

So I've taken the CPU off the RMA and am just returning the mobo for now. I should have the new one in a couple of days.

Here's hoping it's the motherboard... otherwise, I'm going to be without my computer for quite a long time!

Btw, I hate my laptop. With a passion. It's like computing in a vat of tar.

Explain to NewEgg about the delay in your video card. I explained the very same thing (RAM for me) and my borked mobo. They processed me an RMA anyway!

When you get your computer up and running you can just send me that old nasty laptop. I've always wanted one but I can't afford it. LOL
