    You are quite welcome.

    If interested, there is a lot of information about various capacitor problems. Google "Capacitor Plague"

    Excerpt from Wikipedia:
    "The capacitor plague was a problem related to a higher-than-expected failure rate of non-solid aluminum electrolytic capacitors, between 1999 and 2007, especially those from some Taiwanese manufacturers, due to faulty electrolyte composition that caused corrosion accompanied by gas generation, often rupturing the case of the capacitor from the build-up of pressure. High failure rates occurred in many well-known brands of electronics, and was particularly evident in motherboards, video cards, and power supplies of personal computers, leading to premature failure of these devices."

    Hm, it seems it was quite an extended problem. Most probably not eradicated for good.
