Angry Is my geforce completely dead?

I purchased a Geforce about a month ago "Geforce Fx 5500 By Chaintec" However everything was working fine tilll one day i shut down my pc because i went to college. come back home few hours later to switch on my pc and my monitor displays no signal connected with multicolored lines flashing up and down my screen... I have tryed to reconnect it to my agp slot & make sure my monitor is plugged in firmly.. i have not installed any new hardware since nor have i changed any bios settings or got any new drivers... my old geforce mx 400 works perfectly this is what i am using now ... But because m card has been working for months i dont have the box or receipt i have tried the support on chaintec no reply still.. i was wondering dont you get a life time warranty on cards? if so would i be able to send it back still without package etc cheers

Most of the dealers require you to keep the box and the receipt.

It's the perfect time to invest some money in a new card

The AGP 6600GT is due to arrive very soon.

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."
