If it is in fact dead then you can make it into a cool keychain (or get it RMA'd...really your choice)!

And the in the worst case scenario, if they don't take it back, you can rest assured that you can get a good stick for under $50. Hell, it's so cheap right now that just might be the excuse you need to kick it up to 512MB. I'm sure that you won't regret it.

Hmmm... I have a motherboard I could turn into a keychain sitting right behind me! :D

I have a dead AOpen AK77 Mobo, dead RDRam, dead SDRam, dead DDR Ram and a dead Savage 4.

Definately good key chain material :)

Baron, cut out the chipset, that would make an original key fob!
