Bad capacitors on motherboard?

  thewasp 17:33 01 Mar 06

My pc has been acting strange for a while now, with crashing and freezing occuring on a daily basis.

I have tried numerous things such as reinstalling windows on a new hd, ensuring no viruses are present, updating drivers etc

I have read about motherboards failing over the last couple of years due to failing capacitors.

Having checked my mb I have found 6 cpacitors with badly bulging tops.

Anyone else had this problem?

Yes my friend had this very same type of problem, and being an elotronics engineer, he replace them and all is now OK
