Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop Problem

Guys, Do you mind elaborating about the last sentence in the paragraph below (This program is in effect till 2008)? Thanks in advance. Fukuro Link: The giveaway is looking at the large 150 uf capacitors; they are the larger ones usually with an ?X? inscribed on the top. If the tops of the capacitors are flat you?re out of luck but if any of them are bulging (even slightly) at the top, leaking electrolyte or split Dell will replace the motherboard for free. This program is in effect till 2008.

Dell did confess that it had some problems with the products it rolled out. If you think your motherboard has the same problem as bulging capacitors. then you can call them and get it replaced. you are eligible for that. Thanks Ashish
