First of all, hello to everyone, well my problem is this...
Today, I was cleaning my computer, when I find this:
In the bottom of mi case this was laying there:
An electrical capacitor of my motherboard, so my question is related to:
1.- Is possible that when this capactior fell off cuase that some irregular o anormal booting problem?
This because, I used to have my rig Oced, but from one day to another, stop booting, and I have to clear cmos, and select the option of LOAD OPTIMIZED DEFAULT for booting from BIOS, shut it down, start it, and make all my OC from zero, every single time that I want to use my PC.
If I don´t Oced, and leave everything stock, works fine.
2.- If I fix it, will work properly again?
3.- In your opinion, what is better, buy a new Motherboard or fix this.
The motherboard can only be fixed with a new capacitor. From the pictures, the stalk has been torn out of the negative side of the old one, so it is now or will be soon leaking.
These guys http://thecapking.com/index.html
can almost certainly supply you with a new one.
I believe that only the engineers who designed the board could tell you if the missing capacitor was causing your boot problems. The cap is cheap, and if you are good with a soldering iron and flux, it might work. If it does not, you will not be out much.
I have repaired my Mother board, replacing the old capacitor with a new one, and still persist booting issues....but I found a patron, I can overclock and boot without any problem, twice, but the third one fails, even the speaker does not make any beep or something...just show a black screen
