some can run duagnostics tests that re-generate your last used settings before you fried the product (if it indeed fried.) Most claim to do this, but in reality, they just have a guy in the back who smells the parts and sees if they smell like a burnt marshmellow lol.
I've RMA'd/returned fried RAM b4, no questions asked, and i go a brand new kit back. Stores are usually the picky ones, online they should return it no questions asked if its still within the #-day return policy. Manufacturer sites will usually ask you for a description of your problem and why you are returning it, they will review it within 24-hours usually and authenticate it if they think it's worthy of a return.
