Hi i just received an Arduino Due which i have never used before but as soon as i got it out the packaging i noticed that some pins where soldered together and when i plug it into my pc i get no notifications or active COM ports - device manager sees nothing not even a unknown device so i guess its dead, it had blink running so i pressed wipe and then the hold reset and wipe with the native port and also tried connecting with the programming port several times.

Any who are these pins shorted ? notice the 4 pairs shorted on the top left and also a pair on the right tip.

Your second link asks for a sign in. And I do not immediately see what you're referring to in the first one.
If you understand an example, use it.
If you don't understand an example, don't use it.

Those pins are NOT bridged on my Due-like board.  Nor on the photos of Due I can find online.

OTOH, those pins are on the SAM3X, and I wouldn't think that they would cause the 16u2 USB/Serial chip to be "undetected" by your PC...
