This sucker died while I was installing my video card. I've read that it's only a cap from the onboard audio, and that it should be safe to use the motherboard with the onboard audio disabled (I do have a dedicated sound card).
Thoughts? Should I get it fixed, yes, no, why, etc...?
Then if you are like me and don't want to solder little stuff you do this path Its a small audio combiner(very basic, but it lets 2 computers both use 5.1 speakers at the same time without one system being able to leak into the other). http://imageshack.us/a/img42/3721/onboardl.jpg
I did left a little piece of iron sticking out of the place were the cap used to sit. No shorts, but the case/psu very often have this static/electrical feel whenever I touch a metalic part of it. I have no idea if it's because of that little piece of iron, but it is a very weird coincidence.
