Noted a member said they had the same problem earlier in this thread and replacing bad caps isn't a big deal.
@ Ruredee: If you still have the board with bad caps, here's what you can do.
All you need is a donor board with good caps, some soldering/unsoldering stuff and time. Make sure the caps are installed correctly when you do it since they can only be set it one way due to polarity.
That's why they have a colored stripe on one side and the MB has a black/white circle at the spot where they go. Match the stripe to the color it goes to when replacing it and it will be OK - Obviously you'd look to see how they are in the board before removing OR as you are removing them. Also make sure you use the same caps and read what's printed on the side of each cap, making sure what you get is the same as what you are replacing related to voltage and the like.Edited by Kryton - 4/22/09 at 1:31am
