RR(-Chippychap @ Nov 3 2005, 12:05 PM)it was in the retail box, only i dont have the 'box' anymore.
and the bite is in a spot that you just cant doe it your own. maybe only by putting a to high voltage on it. but i dodn't do that.
I doubt you will be able to exercise the warranty without the box, especially if the CPU is defective and looks like it has been abused. I'm not saying it was abused, but if it looks like it most likely the warranty is null and void. You will probably just have to purchase a new one, that is the only option that you have, especially after a year of using it that way.
