Default bad vid card after rma

i cant beleive this, usually im one to fix probs, but not this one. k here goes

i bought a 3dfuzion geforce mx 4000 that came with a fx5200 gpu, and a fan/heatsink(came on card) from walmart and it died on me, so i rma'ed with 3dfuzion and got it back wednesday, and had just a sink, no fan, had a mx4000 gpu, and now the tv-out dosent work...tried it of 2 different televisions, but nothing. should i consider sending it back? im in no hurry to use it for anythng, as the pc it was in died shortly after i sent the card(like later that day). ive already got the new drivers, but nothing, ne sugestions before i blow another 20 bux on fedex? i would much rather that money going to my new mobo/cpu/ram. also ive noticed that the cpu speed is faster before, and way much hotter( increased case temp by 12f), but they did fix the problem i had(pixelation of 1024 x 768 60hz) but stole my fan and the box i bought it in...well now i cant take back to walmart, nice

also its not a low profile card, its a full card, purple
