Well, a really nice AA member sent me an A2620 and it worked....for two weeks. Last night it just died. Ugh.

 

Round 2. Does anyone have an accelerator they would like to part with for cash or trade? I don't have a ton of things to trade nowadays, but maybe I have something you need. PM if you have something. Thanks!

Did you try overclocking it or something?    :lol:  
 

Shouldn't have just died all by itself, but (if/since the card sat for so long), do you see any bulging or leaking electrolytic caps by chance? Edge connector and Fast Slot pins in great shape?

You know, I did this but I came home tonight and scrubbed it even harder. It works again :) False alarm folks ;)

That's because you asked about condition, he actually told him to clean them regardless of condition.

Really, I'm just razzing as I don't give a hoot. Just thought it a little strange. But find your explanation even stranger. ;)
