Finally, as of about 7 pm last night, my laptop is FIXED! Long story short, original tech guy was fired for not only not showing up to his appointments for the last week, but for keeping the parts and then filing reports that he had done the work and fixed the computers. New lady tech came last night and repaired and then double-checked everything.
More to post later, adoption-wise, but I did want to post a more positive post than last time.
