What caused my PC to fail?

Thought I should add this video to the site as my motherboard failed due to this:

thought i’d add this:

blown capacitors

capacitors – blown tops

It’s my motherboard which failed due to capacitors spraying electrolyte over the board: the long and short the psu tripped out!

Just to satisfy my curiosity I purchased and fitted replacements for all the visually blown capacitors. The motherboard still exhibited the same symptoms: logically therefore the board has suffered further damage caused by these components failing. I would hope that if they had been replaced while the board was still working it may have been possible to repair the PC.
