  5. get a similarly rated capacitor, find where the capacitor is missing and solder away
  6. Hi there,

    Sorry for exhuming this thread, but I have the same problem.

    In my case the card doesn't even turn on (or well, produce video output, the fans do spin normally at boot), not sure if that's due to the capacitor falling off or something else, as I bought it in this state already.

    Xaira was suggesting getting a similarly rated capacitor and replacing it. Could he, or anyone else explain which way we could find that out?

    What's written on the capacitor itself (LF 270 C 941) is not in itself too clear, at least the unaccustomed eye, but I'd like to try and solder a new capacitor on, before giving up on the card altogether.

    Any help would be appreciated!
