Fixed a server with soldering iron

Some time ago, I was hired to try and revive a server that died.  It was an old Dell server that running as a Windows Domain Controller.

This was the boot up screen.



After a lot of research, I discovered in a forum that the specific SCSI card was prone to bulging capacitors.  Obviously the dust doesn’t help.





So being the true geek that I am, I went searching through my pile and found the specific replacement capacitors and heated up my soldering iron.



End results …… happy customer !fixed_card_2
