You could upload photos to sites such as Photobucket and leave an IMG code. It's much quicker and easier than asking for emails.

Also, you could talk to ASRock about repairing the motherboard. If I'm not mistaken, they'll charge you a few $$$, however, it'll get your board in working order.

I'm looking at the pins, but I don't see any that stand out as bent. None-the-less, if you have a very, very steady hand then you can repair them yourself. Get a mechanical pencil. Stick the pin into the tip of the pencil (where the lead comes out) and very, VERY gently bend it back to its original position. Very gently!

The other option is what mocchan said - contact the manufacturer and see if they can assist with the repair.

+1 for phyco126

Using a mechanical pencil is about the best chance that you have. Most of the time a manufacturer will say that the board wasn't shipped that way but try to contract them first before you try to bend them back.

If you plan to repair it yourself, look up how to fix a broken pin on youtube and go with LinusTechTip's tutorial if not, RMA it and contact Asrock about it
