Yes rnronie38, there is everything possible today. To avoid such issues I will suggest you to buy your laptop only from a reliable resource.
If you are not technical, please contact customer care center. They will guide you proper and answer to your question.
I want to discuss about if it is possible to replace a motherboard in a laptop with a not genuine motherboard. If somebody does it how to check the genuineness of the motherboard assuming the laptop is in packed condition and serial number of the suspected motherboard can't be seen.
