How should I handle this?
    #4718674 - 09/27/05 07:09 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

The other day I traded a guy my 9600XT + cash for his 9800 pro.

Last night he said his games kept crashing. And now hes saying he installed new drivers and now the display is all fucked up. And he wants me to give him $80 and take my card back. But I don't know if he did anything and fried it and is trying to screw me. I know the card I traded him works fine, I was using it just before I sold it to him.

What should I do?

Tell him sorry, it was working when you sold it to him, did you let him see it working?

My 9600XT has that same problem with my drivers. Most of the time when installing new drivers, it hates them and reverts back to 4 colors, I just have to uninstall them and then reinstall them and it usually works.

and tell him that it sucks, but $80 + the card back? That's crazy. Even trade back, that's all it should be. The guy should give you the card and the money you gave him back if anything.

Refer him to your no refund policy or buyer beware program.

Buyer beware. Unless he's a friend you want to stay on good terms with. I'd offer to help him fix the prob if thats the case.

Has he done research on his board to spot conflicts? I used to have a vid card that clashed with my board and caused <i>sound</i> problems. Go fig.

I think I intereted his one e-mail wrong. He was talking about the BF2 display. He says it runs fine in windows but after a few minutes in BF2 it crashes. But still it's wierd because he used it on the same motherboard ive been using it on for over a month.

He said he would show the card working in windows, so I'll just re-trade him.
