    I worked out a much easier way to prevent HP computers from causing problems. It is 100% effective.

      Bulged caps it was. Stripped the memory and HD and off to the recycler.

      Apparently they make the caps so you can easily spot the bulged ones. Mine had aluminum (?) foil on ends with a cross cut in the foil. When they bulged it's obvious without touching them.

      The local computer guys sell $20 cap replacement kits. I imagine not mqny older systems are worth that price plus the time to replace. Anybody done it?

        LOL Evan,

        I found a lot of computer people feel the same way about HPs.

        I think I only saved a few items from it & it went to one of the e-waste recycling drives we've had here.
        Best wishes to ya’ll.

        Sincerely,

        Jim
