Horrible Building Experience Tags: New Build RAM Motherboards Computer Systems Last response: March 13, 2010 8:37 PM in Systems Share johnjohnson March 13, 2010 2:17:22 PM I was just horrified by my experience building a computer. I had everything right according to the manual and the customer service people i spoke too but nothing would show up on my monitor. I checked the beeps and the customer service guy said something was wrong with my motherboard, after I spoke to him I tested my computer by taking the ram out and putting it back in and then a little smoke came out of a ram socket in the motherboard! I almost had a died after seeing that. Will new egg still return my mother board and ram, the mobo has nothing visually wrong with it looks perfect, one ram stick has a small burn on the far edge that is barely visible. Are they easy to return stuff to?
