Motherboard problem: Change capacitors

I’ve experience issues with my Acer X1700 only after two years of used.

The problem was: random kernel panic, while memtest86 ran successfully.

I then open the case, found out capacitors (close to ram) where bulgy.

Measuring the voltage, shown lot of noise around 2V.
I then salvaged from an old mobo 2 capacitor (remember, at least same voltage and capacity).

And solder the new one, and check the tension: everything is fine now and then.

Seems to be a plague, such a problem, it’s mainly translated in ….
