Re: I think a silver capacitor came off my old GF4 Ti4200 video card!
My hardware friend came over to check out my old Leadtek GF4 Ti4200 MyVIVO card. It still worked (we didn't go to Linux/Debian though) without its fallen cap. However, my friend noted some minor orange leaks and a cap buldged that I noticed earlier. I decided not to fix and keep using this card, but get a cheap GeForce FX 5200 card for basic video stuff in Linux/Debian. I didn't want to risk more problems with the video card.
