Computer having trouble turning on and bootingLocked
If I turn it off for any period of time, it will take me several minutes of fiddling with it to get it to turn on again. I mean things like unplugging kb and mouse or turning it off at the power switch.
However eventually it will boot up and run fine, as evidenced by the fact that I am typing this up on it. Looking at the mobo closey, I noticed one capacitor near the mobo heat sink that was slightly bulging out.
Seems obvious that the mobo is part of the problem, but I’m curious if i need to replace anything else like the memory or hd. Only card i have is an ide video card. I mean except for occassionally rebooting and having trouble powering on, everything seems fine.
