Question about Jetway 939GT4-SLI-G Motherboard

1 Answer

Tops blown off

Last month while running my computer there was a loud electrical snap from inside the computer.
I didn't really think anything about cause the computer was still running and I havn't any problems with it.
Today I went to put the motherboard into a new case and I notice 4 capacitors (I think) with their tops blown off.
The number on them are F255-1500--6.3v.
Question is why is the board still running?
Can I keep on running it?
I'm fixing to check to see what kind of warranty this board has and what do I tell the RMA people what is wrong if the board still works?

This isn't going to solve your issue, but my opinion is that if even if your computer is still running it is still an issue that they should look at especially if the board is still under warranty. I wouldn't say a thing about the computer still being able to run, especially if they will warranty it.

I have seen capacitors burn up, but not the tops blowing off. Even though the board is still working you may have a feature of some sort out, such as you onboard video or something. I almost bet that something is still wrong, and it would be a matter of time before you have more issues.

(Those are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors. They do pop. What REALLY makes a loud bang, is if a Solid Polymer Capacitor pops! Explode like a small grenade inside your computer case!

May not even see it anymore. Just a place on the motherboard where it was, and shrapnel from it all over inside the computer case.
When THEY pop, you KNOW it! )

Just had my Hayward Tristar 2-spd pump/motor replaced a month ago. I've been running it on high speed for about 3 weeks because my control pad went out and I couldn't get it to run on low speed. ...

running the pump on high speed will not have caused the problem, they are meant to run 3,450 rpm's continually. It's more than likely a supply power problem like you mentioned. Check GFI's, and breakers to see if anything has tripped.

Our Panasonic 50" TH 42PX75U

well it sounds like something fried inside the tv. In my experience, this sounds like your y-sustain board went bad. it could be your video board also. considering todays value of the 50" panasonic plasma, it will be cheaper to replace it, unless you are willing to spend around $300 to get it fix at a shop.
good luck

Sudden crackles in the right surround speaker!

Your speaker is busted. You will need to get another one. It really can not be repaired and if it can, it will cost more than a new speaker.
