Exclamation Video has a BLOWN CAPACITOR !

Hey guys iv searched the forum and i cant find what im looking for.


Ok this is my BIG problem my computer crashed a cuple a weeks ago when i was trying to play FarCry with my Gforce4 Ti 4200 lol and my computer over heat when it crashed so i was like owell its over heated before so I restart like normal and i try playing need for speed under ground (At pretty low settings) and it starts laggin and im like what the crack ? and then i try playing quake and some other games and THEY ALL LAGGED it was really gay so i went to a lan party saturday and we all tryed figuring out what was wrong and well after a few hours my friend spotted what looked like a blown capacitor on my video card and im like omy gosh finaly i think we found the problem after the millionth thing myself and others have tryed. So Im Pretty that its a blown capacitor possably from over heating

Any idea's ???

maybe i can replace it with a new 1 ???

I could get a cheap 1 or replace the capacitor pretty easy cus my Brother is head of the geek squad at Bestbuy but i can never get ahold of him and I want to prove to my dad that I can fix this problem *thats supossaly my fault*

So if you any info on this subject post it up thanks.

Sure, you could try. Just find out the rating and all for it, and hope you have some steady hands when your resoldering it ;P Best bet would probably be to just get a new one... For all you know, it'll just blow again when it gets power...

I broke one off. It was under warranty and the Manufacturer just soldered a new on on.
