Default Re: I think a silver capacitor came off my old GF4 Ti4200 video card!

If it did fall off in one whole piece though, I guess it could be soldered, but you should post pics here first.
I don't have a digital camera. Even if I had one, I doubt I can get a good shot of it.

Now to think about it, I might have accidently knocked the capacitor down while removing the card from the motherboard. Are capacitors supposed to be easy to remove?
