A couple things here. First, did you make sure to not touch the bulb with your fingers when installing. The oils on your hands or any foreign substance on them will dramatically reduce the life of the bulb. If that cannot be the case then I would look for a short in the wiring from you light back to the fuse box. It could be a nick in the wire or a loose connection in your socket causing the short. Just replacing the sockets on both lights could take care of it if you want to just take a stab in the dark. Otherwise find where the short is occurring.
The caps would seem to me, to be a protection cap,
which would go on to of the spring,to protect from
the electrical current.Hard to say, since I can't see
the setup.See if you can Google a diagram or pdf.
Ok, they're the kiddies to replace, are they all the same manufacturer? all 1000uf 6v3's?
What happens is the electrolyte breaks down and produces hydrogen gas, sometimes they can literaly explode but more often than not they'll either blow out the top or the rubber plug on the bottom and just leak the electrolyte on the PCB.
The electrolyte is corrosive so best to snip the caps out ASAP and clean the board up with a good PCB cleaning solvent before you attempt to replace.
Sorry if your aware of this, dont mean to teach you to **** eggs ;)

Your LCD backlight is not working. It is fixable but it is not a repair I would recommend to the typical user. The reason is that you have to disassemble a fairly good portion of the laptop to access the light source and/or the electrical components that control it. If you have excellent attention to detail, patience, experience with the disassembly and handling of electronics and the tools then give it a try. It is also important to also realize that by doing it yourself you risk the real possibility of damaging your laptop beyond economic repair then it may also be worth a try.
Otherwise I would strongly suggest you take your laptop to the local authorized repair shop.
