A couple of months ago I had a problem with my MBP since I could not turn it on at all. It was completely dead. I gave it to Apple to repair it and they replaced the Logic Board costing me nearly 500. I got it back yesterday and it was fine, but today I had to restart it since it was not responding and I found out that not only it does not turn on, it also makes a really loud noise-alert.

I have tried anything but still is not working. I can hear it that it starts but the noise is very loud and the display is not working.

This is really disappointing from Apple especially after spending so much money on it.

Sounds like the new logic board was a refurb or otherwise not installed properly. Take it back.

Doesn't matter how much you paid for it or who made it, if you have something repaired under warranty and it fails after that repair, it's a big problem.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I hope it will be repaired in the end because I know that lots of people have the same problem with the Logic Board but the problem never ends. I was considering to buy a new one but I had to repaired it anyway so that I would not lose everything that I have saved on it.
It was not under coverage. I had to pay for the repair.

I also think you should take it back and have them look at it again. Regardless of whether you got it repaired under warranty or if you paid for the repair the problem should be fixed. Apple shouldn't make you pay for a new repair since it broke again after only one day. Technically they really didn't repair anything if it's still broken.
