A bit risky....but u can buy a new high quality capacitor of equal rating for really cheap and fix it back yourself. Hope you have a friend who has a low wattage thin tip solder, and who's good at soldering in tight spaces :) 

Other than that, you can try claiming warranty on the mobo, but they might reject it on the grounds of physical damage:(

Most probably:)  Capitors are used either for filtering AC noise, or as a charge resovior.

No i think u misunderstood me...i mean to say that the missing cap IS probably the reason why ur stuck at x16. :) 

Another rare possibility is that ur BIOS is not at the latest version.....u can try flashing it with the latest BIOS to see if it helps, but then again with a missing cap it can be very risky !!
