Default Fixed, apparently.

I wake up one day and my graphics card has stopped working, switch the pc on and the screen is left blank. I think 'Well this must be a hardware problem, maybe its the slot?!' So I try my other graphics card in the same slot, it works.

So I send away my card back to Aria to be replaced/fixed whatever. They tell me it works fine, completed a 'stress test' and that they will be sending it back.

Mmm ok.. so I get it back and yes you guessed it, still doesn't work. The card is a Radeon 9550.

Are you sure the 9550 was in the slot snug? I cannot think of an explaination to this one.
