hi all, my problems its that i bought a phenom in amazon USA and get it shpped to my country, first month processor was working very wall, the my compurer suddensly stops showing display images, i first thought it was my nvidia card fault so shut the computer and check cable and turn on and everything went back to normal....

after that the computer did tha same sometimes, but after shut down always went to normal, but then one day my screnn got frozen and then i just shut down and think ***** windows 7, after booting in the windows log on screen the computer did the same but this time show me blue screen but i could not read it cos suddenly the display turn, off........

after that my computer never turn on again, it was like locked, i could not even enter to the bios screen, try everything, change ram, motherboard, PSU, video card, and nothing happend, so i juts bought and amd sempron 145 and it was like magic my compurter turn on and work prefectly.... after a few days just to try i change again my semprom with the bad phenom and to surprise me my computer turned on, but then again in log on screen it just got frozen then it never turn on again.....

i am using the sempron but i want to know it you think that somehow i just damage my phenom(it does not have any physical damage, it looks like i took it out of the box), but the sempron its to slow to encoding videos and i need to encode videos fast, so if i damage my processor, can i still send it to amd for warranty???? or i will need to buy a new one cos its my fault the processor got damage???............

thanks for thaking your time reading my long post

talk to Amazon since u bought the chip from the us and had it shipped to you, you wouldn't be covered by the US Warranty, if Amazon can't help then contact AMD directly and explain the situation they might be able to help
