I donot think that it is that eazy to find out the faulty Capacitors in Computers.
I recommend you to check if any of the Capacitor is bulged like say, out of its regular shape.
If you find any, I beleive that it is faulty.
Hope this helps...

Air compressor 2hp 230v 1ph motor. I need to know how to test a starting capacitor. Thanks

IF you don't have a special meter, that costs more than the capacitor, just replace it. The meter is called an ESR meter and they are $$

How to if fan is bad or capacitor is bad

You can test the capacitor with an analog volt meter, one with a hand not digital. Make sure that the capacitor is discharged, it is kind of like a battery in that it will store electricity. You can short the terminals with a serce driver but make sure to wear protection like rubber gloves and use a plastic handled screwdriver that is clean of oil and grease and dry. Set the volt meter to Ohms on a mid level setting and touch the meter leads to the terminals of the capacitor. The meter should spike up and then drop off. Reverse the leads on the capacitor and touch it again and ou chould get the same. Placing the leads on in the same direction twice should not cause a reaction on the meter at all. If the meter does not react as described, the capacitor is probably bad.

No power. I changed fuse but microwave blows it immediately.

Be very careful! Standard microwaves have 2100volt capacitors and commercial ones 4000 volt capacitors.
*Decharge your capacitor(s) before doing diagnostics*.
You are now testing the high voltage side (as it works on convection). The main components are a transformer, a capacitor, a diode and a magnetron (havent seen a triac in a panasonic residential). If you have a proper meter that can test uf, decharge the capacitor, then test the capacitor, if it reads 0, you need a new capacitor (10$ used typically, 14$ new from ebay). To test the magnetron, decharge the capacitor first, remove the spade connections, test each leg to the frame of the microwave... if it shows measurable resistance, the magnetron is bad. The transformer is not something you test as I personally dont have a 4000 volt meter. If the diode, the magnetron and capacitor are okay, then the transformer is bad. To eliminate any other function, disconnect the low voltage to the transformer run a micropower cycle and check the fuse.
Hope that helps. My first instinct is the capacitor.

Gateway MX6930 Notebook will not power up

Yes a bad battery could cause this, or a bad battery control circuit. If it works with the battery out then it's one of these two issues. If it's the control circuit, there's not much you can do, I'm afraid, but the only way to be sure is to get a new battery (or borrow one for the same model).

ZE2000 No power issue

Check on the motherboard if there is a fuse. It may look like a diode or resistor.
Does it work on battery, if you have a charged one?

No power on HP Pavilion ze2000

Remove the power cord and the battery. Hold down the power button for up to one minute to discharge the laptop.

Re-install the battery and power cord and see if it turns on.
