Question Scratched Motherboard

As near as I can tell those three or four gouges in the motherboard did not hit any traces, solder joints, or motherboard components.

However, there could be other damage (unseen) due to the board being pushed, twisted, or otherwise stressed in some manner during your attempt to remove the back plate.

E.g., are those the memory card slots connections to the right of the gouges?

Any photographs of the opposite side?

I would not expect another part to be fried per se during testing. Hopefully all that would happen is that that part simply would not work. No sparks, smoke, burning smells, etc....

Keyword - "hopefully".

Wait for other opinions and posts.

I tested it. It booted fine and runs no problem. My only concern is if there is some possible future issue that could harm my other hardware. I know this is not something anybody can know for sure, but is this a low likelihood of a future problem?
