Identifying RAM manufacturer

I have a defective RAM chip I bought recently from a computer show. The individual modules on the chip have what appear to be a manufacturer logo. However, after searching for that name nothing appeard.

Is there any kind of general identification for RAM chips? I would like to take advantage of the warranty but cannot pin point the manufacturer. Some details: 64MB PC100 SDRAM chip. All 8 modules are labeled with some weird logo and these numbers: 9917A2A and WTC4MGS4T-8. A sticker contains a bar code and some more numbers, 1239900021666. Do RAM chips fit under FCC regulations and numbers?

I already tried contacting the "fly by night" distributor who seems no longer to exist. Go figure.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Can you describe about the logo shape? It could tell you who is the DRAM chip maker.

The number "WTC4MGS4T-8" is vital part number for the DRAM chip.

There are a gazillion companies out there that "glue" memory to boards and call themselves memory makers. Almost all  major manufacturers of memory modules are happy to put their name on their modules. Even if you identify the manufacturer of the components, you will in all likelyhood not have recourse. I fear that your purchase may have been for naught.
