You mention about a Asrock splash screen I do not get that at all.
Joedaman633 when I reseated the CPU I had a quick look when I lifted the CPU up and 1 of the pins look a bit meh on it,
I'm planning to take it some where tomorrow, I just feel pretty bad for my mate been waiting for this all week and now he has got nothing at the moment and I feel like it's kinda my fault even though it really isn't as far as I know.

If the motherboard does have a faulty pin, I should just send it back and get a replacement right? without too much hassle I mean.
In most cases, bent pins on the motherboard are a result of the person building the PC, so it's difficult to claim this on warranty, they probably wouldn't believe you!
You can try to claim it first, but if they wont accept it, then you have no choice put to carefully try and straighten them (a thin plastic blade normally works, so you can straighten them in relation to the other pins) hey're very fragile, you might get one shot at bending them back or they'll break immediately.
