But yea the board you are currently trying to use sounds like it has "something" wrong with it.... causing buss hogging issues or maybe something tripping an interrupt constantly / randomly random thought, does it have any tantalum's? It does not, but I suspect you are right and the smaller caps need replacing as well. But the heck with that. This particular board has a ton of them and it is just not worth my time and investment considering a new board ran me $20. I actually purchased two NOS boards since they were so cheap. Now, they are also old and might need recapping one day (or soon) but at least I know what these boards have been through...nothing. This board I am taking out however I have no idea about the history. It could have had problems from day one and the original owner just tossed it aside. Thankfully these aren't uber rare (yet). If it were I would be much more inclined to work on it. At this point I just want to get this build done and play around with some games and stuff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
