Sent my laptop for repairs and the updates are CONFUSING! PLEASE HELP!

So I sent my laptop out for repairs on the august 16th and I get an update on the "Your Repair Status" page on the 21st saying "8/21/2021 8:23 a.m.       We've requested a part for your repair. Good news - it's in stock." I'm think great that should be done pretty soon. I call geek squad and find out my laptop needs a new motherboard and network card and that in his experience it would take about 10-14 days to replace. I say to myself "okay bet, they are working on it". I SPOKE TOO SOON! On 8/25/2021  I get an email from data recovery personel (?) and the email reads "Reaching out to you in regards to your Alienware device you sent out for repairs. Currently the parts needed is a Power board ,Part on order . We will reach back out in 3 Business Days with another update. Thank you."  How the heck do you say "GOOD NEWS - IT'S IN STOCK" if it's not????? AND THEN, I check today and they update my "Your Repair Status" but all the did WAS CHANGE THE TIME AND DATE from 8/21/2021 8:23 a.m to 8/27/2021 03:06 p.m. with the message "We have requested a part for your repair - GOOD NEWS it's in stock. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY LAPTOP?? CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME?? (I have screen shots of both "updates" for referrence)
