    I send my msi NX8800GTS 640mb OC back because after 9 months it stopped working and the shop told me that they can't replace it because it doesn't have a serial number sticker on it. Could someone send me a picture of their serial number sticker so I know what it look like and search in the card (or in the house!) to find it??? (I check the card and it really doesn't have any kind of serial number sticker on it, I know that the serial number sticker should be next to the extra power plug). I hope that msi didn't forget to put a sticker on it.

    Please help me guys, I bought this card 400euros and I can't throw it away.
    Thanks in advance...

    I have an EVGA videocard that got so hot the sticker floated off and ended up in the bottom of the PC case.

    This is all from the US site which may not be valid for you. I could not find a Greece site.

    Here is somthing that I try to do but only complete about half the time. I have an e mail folder for all computer purchases. I put in it all e mail that I got regarding the purchase, delivery, etc. Then I e mail myself the serial number and model number (the official part number). Then I put them all in the folder and pretty much forget about it. The folder is huge. But then I can search it for any relevant terms.

    The reason that I bring this up is that if you can find in your e mail trash, etc some e mail that shows the purchase then maybe you can trace it back and find the number.

    Also, a local shop may be willing to sell/trade a used videocard of comparable value. Or maybe for twenty dollars more. Sometimes they have these lying around the store and a twenty dollar bill and the old video card can sometimes get you something comparable that works.

    Iirc, The serial on the box is the same as the card.
