It’s possible that the old computer you’ve given up on just has some bad capacitors and there’s an easy way to tell. Just take a look at the image below and notice that the top of one of the cylinder shaped components is bulging slightly. That’s a bad capacitor and it’s replaceable. The capacitor below the coil is one that I just replaced. Notice that it’s flat on top.
You might also notice some capacitors that are leaning a bit or lifting off the motherboard. These are also potentially bad. If your computer screen is freezing or displaying weird graphics, you may have bad caps. Your computer might not even turn on. If you’d like to find out if your old computer is economically fixable, then bring it in for a free diagnosis. With some basic repairs and upgrades, your computer could be fixed and running better than ever.
