No update on my laptop in 2 weeks

I took my laptop (MSI GE66 Raider) in on 29 december 2021, for a repair because my laptop would overheat quickly and was told around 2-3 weeks for it under the year warranty, Since it now being week 3 and my last update being 5JAN22 and that last update being “We've requested a part for your repair. Good news - it's in stock.“ Im confused on what possible part could take this long to replace for an overheating issue, with no work being done since that I am aware of. I’ve tried the chat several times on the website yesterday and today, and the stores number just automates me to the same thing with other numbers listed.

Re: No update on my laptop in 2 weeks

Pretty mcuh any part for a laptop right now will be in short supply, possibly backordered.  COVID continues to impact supply chain timing. 2-3 weeks was the standard turnaround prior to the challenges COVID brought to the industry.

If it was back ordered, why would it not say so and tell me it was in stock for whatever part is being replaced, and is there a way i can figure out what part is being replaced? And is there a wait time i can expect, because i need my laptop for work.
