Bad Biostar MOBO experience

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Well, I recently upgraded my server, and just in time.
The board that was in it was sht.  Once I shut it down,
It would not power back up.  After looking at the board, I found the
problem- swollen, leaking  capacitors around the CPU (VMR).  BTW: it's
a Biostar M7VKD.

Biostar refuses to help despite to track record this board has (they
have had several fail due to this issue). I have had the board almost
two years, but can't locate the invoice, so they won't warranty it.

I guess this is the last Biostar product I ever buy.  I got almost two
years out of it, so I should not complain.  However, in my opnion this
problem should not have happened.... period.

Oh well.
