8800 GTS capacitor snapped off, can it be replaced? - Page 2

post #11 of 76
Yep looks like a clean snap

Which is good. Find another cap like it and you can just solder it straight on

Yep should easily be able to solder one right back onto it..soldering isnt hard at all, just have to have a steady hand..If it does not work even after that...the seller was not very honest

What does Vista have to do with a hardware issue - a capacitor snapping off???

But yeah, I'll bet anything you can solder it back on.

hey everyone, its me! the one who won a Inno3D 8800 GTS 640MB from eBay inwhich a capacitor has been snapped off as described.

i cna now confidentally tell u that i have received the item early this morning and checked it out myself.

i can actual say, that my first impression when holding the graphic in my hand (or finger tips shall i say?) was "you know, this is pretty heavy (and big) for a graphics card".

anyways, i checked out the damaged area and it does seem like a clean snap, however, i was hoping if i could ask for your help on how to replace it and as well as of course the obvious, what capacitor should i solder on? like do i get the exact same one? something on par powerful to it? or something else? i dont know.

i am really hoping if someone can help me out here, i have taken captures on my webcam (dont get put-off cause u may think the quality would be crap) to give you a much better idea on how to damaged area looks like.

i would really appreciate it if anyone here can.

thanks very much.

Best bet would be to pop down to Maplins and show them the picture and see if they have a replacement.
