Hey everyone, well I knew this day was coming. My girlfriends HP pavilion died yesterday, and being the great boyfriend that I am I offered to fix it for her (even though the first thing out of my mouth was, you should just buy a mac). After turning it on and not seeing the windows screen, I knew it was either the HDD or the Mobo. Once I looked inside of it, it was indeed the mobo, having one blown cap on it. I told her that I would take it home and make sure that this was the problem and it was. Now my question is this, is there anyway to just take that one cap off and replace it? I'm sure its possible, I'm still new to fixing motherboards. If so, how hard would it be? I know soldering would be required.... Thanks everyone!!
