> Look at the caps on the motherboard. Any bulging?

Surprisingly, no.

EDIT:

I spoke too soon. I took it completely apart tonight and pulled out the motherboard for closer inspection under better lighting and there's definitely a bulging cap near the memory slots.

Personally, I don't think it's worth my time trying to replace the cap. It was a cheap mass-market AMD based HP desktop PC from around 2006 or 2007, I think. It came with Windows Vista back when Vista was a brand-new thing and people didn't know they hated it yet.

I know that as soon as I replace this cap, the power supply will fail, or the hard drive will commit suicide. That's how things go.

I just ordered one of these to replace it. My step-father should be happy. He likes Dell stuff...
