- I'd get a screwdriver and open it up, look for obvious damage, if you see a leaking capacitor you're prolly on to the cause.

$2 fix if you see them bulging, leaking, or growing out of their labels.Apr 20, 2012
- Bad caps aren't usually found on laptops. Find them alllll the time on desktops tho.Apr 20, 2012
- Nothing leaking, funny smelling or otherwise.Apr 20, 2012
- Well, not from this computer at any rate :)Apr 21, 2012
- I need to poke a whole in your statement above: The CPU is removable in laptops. I have taken apart over 50 of them, and never found one that has a non-removable CPU. The graphics chip, however, is permanently affixed.Apr 21, 2012
- I guess it's true. I don't have a lot of experience with laptops. But the one I have was not. The video card in my laptop also burned out (too much gaming) and when I went to replace it I discovered the processor was part of the mobo just as the video card was.Apr 21, 2012
