I was tearing open an old ATX power supply from one of my old computers today, because it was making a funny high-pitched wining noise.
I noted that several of the components within were starting fuse together into a sort of electronics mush.
My thought is that it's probably no-longer safe to use this power supply, so I swapped it out in the old computer I was using.
Here are a few photo of the component mush:
Now I guess my question is:
Can I fix this?
How long do I have to wait before the capacitor within has indeed run out of power?
(it's a 350W ATX Power Supply)
Is there any place to find out what components I need to replace them?
