What the OP did and didn't know is irrelevant to his/her cry for help at the moment. Just dropping in to say basically "You may have f@*%ed it up beyond fixing, but I hope you fix it," is of no value. It does nothing to help the state of mind of the individual who is troubleshooting. It distracts from what individuals are trying to accomplish when they take the time to assist posters.
If someone wants to highlight the warranty issue, that can be done when the OP's problem is resolved. Also, a private message can be sent as a follow-up.
