I think I ruined my motherboard

  1. Well, it has been a bad day today, I decided to install an old cooler I had so I took out my motherboard and installed it. I was getting 70c so I thought I had installed the cooler wrong. So I tightened the cooler , a bit too much I thing since I broke a screw. So basically the temps went down but since a screw was missing it wasnt optimal so I decided to reinstall the old cooler I had, well I realized suddenly the device that held the screws (located beneath the motherboard) was stuck, I got desperate and took it out with force. Well, I left a few dents on the motherboard and now it wont start. the dents seemed to break one of those tiny connections the motherboard has. The computer wouldnt start so I guess those dents ruined it. Im getting a new one tomorrow. Any comments?
