Bought 2 Pi ZERO, and 1 not working

I ordered 2 pi Zero in this order from your store. I tried the exact same SD card(the one works in the other pi zero) and plugged in the same cables(monitor, power), but this one pi zero("1 x Raspberry Pi Zero WH (Zero W with Headers)[ID:3708] ") does not load/render anything to the monitor. Wonder you can send me a replacement. thanks

finally, i got time to try this out.
the zero does show up in the device manager,
but the zero just does not load when I tried with the same sd card that works in the other zero,

the 2 PI zeros have a small difference(with, without headers),
one comes with headers that can not run the same pi image, the one without headers works fine

Please try starting over with a fresh OS image on the SD card. For troubleshooting, just use the Lite version of the Raspberry Pi OS. Since the Pi's are different, it may be something with the OS image being used.

Do you know how to SSH into the Pi? Or is your only way to access it via an attached monitor?
