Sorry for any delay, I took it apart! I checked all the local radioshacks and thay didnt have any caps that fit. The board is a Microstar MS-6312 out of a Gateway Essential 566c, year 2000-2001. If you can find a picture, the bad caps are the 2 big ones side-by-side just below the memory slots. They are both 1500uf, 10v made by Lelon, which according to badcaps.net are one of those bad brands. I got it from a friend a while ago, so I dont know how long theyve been that way.

You can only get these motherboard capacitors by mail-order from places like digikey. I had tried Radioshack, Fry's Electronics, Microcenter and numerous local computer and electronic components store all without success. I think the digikey part # you want is P10228-ND(1500uf, 10v, height=12.5mm, diameter=10mm). Digikey charges a $5.00 handling fee if your order is less than $25.00, but that is still cheaper than the $50-60 you pay to have someone fix it for you. I would rather spend that money on a new board. I have some leftover caps from my last recap job but they are the 1500uf, 6.3v variety, or I would have offered to send them your way.

$50-60 is better than the $350 Gateway wanted to fix it. Oh, yes that is the right part#. Thanks, jwsm!

Mouser is a good place to get mobo
caps cheap. You can often find ones
that are the same physical size and
capacitance that have a bit higher
voltage rating (more electrical
"headroom" above the actual working
voltage). That helps to guarantee
a reliable repair--especially if you're
still using the same power supply
(maybe a little hot on a particular
voltage or doesn't have the best
regulation in the world).

Yeah, it's an old thread, but others might benefit from the information...

It worked just fine for me. Here's a write-up on it: http://www.gabston-howell.org/tech/gateway.bro.shtml

Heh. Not hardly.
It likes Camino, Dillo, Firebird, Firefox, Galeon, K-Meleon, Konqueror, LibWWW, links, Lynx, Mozilla, Motorola.Browser, MultiZilla, Netscape, Nokia.Browser, Opera, Phoenix, Safari, Seamonkey, UP.Browser, WebCollage... anything except Trident-based browsers (IE, AOL, MSN, and their ilk).

The jury is still out on Netfront, Obigo, and Openwave. I'll have to get back to you on those.
