It sounds like all he did was disconnect the faulty power button from the motherboard, and then connect the reset button in its place. They are both the same type of switch. All it means is you have to remember to press the button marked 'reset' now to turn it on. He gave you a quick and inexpensive fix. You should be fine if that's what he did.
