Contact the person who sold you this. If they do not accept it back, tell eBay, or wherever you got it.

^^^ Ditto. Lodge complaints with PayPal and eBay (or whoever). Even if the seller claims he didn't know it was bad he still sold it to you knowing it could not be RMAd due to the removed serial number (which should be a HUGE red flag as to where this board came from).

Mike, don't be. I buy used parts every once in awhile. Just remember when auctioning, do some research on the person. Warranty is a plus.
