that fast . Again, what makes you think that the issue is caused by
dry out capacitors? Why isn't it happening all the times, if the
capacitors are dried out? IMO there's no evidence that the capacitors
could be the cause for the trouble. And again, capacitors on the sound
card for what function? Replacing caps based on guessing, related on
