On a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS. Capacitor labeled FZ77, 470, 16V. I’d guess that dust buildup caused a short that blew it.

[UPDATE: Other people having the same issue. do maybe it is a defect inherent to this capacitor]

Using my laptop to post this.

Best Buy was closed; I think because of the snow.

Found my newer camera to take this shot in my laptop bag. Still need to find the battery charger for it.
