I have acquired a old Packard Bell desktop, and upon cleaning I noticed 4 blown capacitor's on the right side of the motherboard (SAM YUNG, 10v, 1000uf). The computer seems to be functioning OK, but sometimes goes really slow, Is it ok to continue using the PC as it has been used in this state for some time to my belief. Also could these blown caps be linked to the slowdowns? I have checked the hard drive for errors, and the machine only has 2GB DDR2, processor is Core 2 Quad Q6600.
