they swiped out the motherboard then they must reinstalled the windows so that it will not create a conflict between new hardware and old drivers, conflict=no start up/[bleep] startup
you took it to a shop then it should be still under warrenty, take it back to them or just take care of it yourself
if you give it to them then you wait a long time
do it your self, 24hrs (reinstalling windows+drivers+software+games+updating all software to new versions)
*note any personal information on hard drive will be lost*

Well back it up and reinstall windows just because they install drivers in windows doesnt mean it has has the drivers needed. You say the switched it out with an intel was it a amd system before or are you talking about the chipset.
It was an ASUS mobo that they replaced with an Intel, not AMD.
The startup works about 90% of the time but it just takes a fe minutes to get past the "windows is starting up" screen.
And Stasiek, of course reinstalling windows will lose any personal information, its kind of a given when you wipe the hard drive....
