|...ugh....fell off the counter??? Why do ppl always seem to forget things like that when they post in online forums (that drives me nuts!). |
Well, did you get in writing what they ACTUALLY did? They may have put in used or new MOBO (they would have charged you a lot of $ for that though), they may have left your old motherboard in there - no way to tell if the shop isn't reputable. Usually with a new MOBO there IS a warranty, and sometimes with used MOBOs too.
If a shop has to do the work 3 times to get something right (although they didn't get it right it seems here, even after 3x), that's a red flag to me.
Just another stupid saying...
