    it won't fry instantly, so perhaps you can turn it on while you have an eye on the card?

    Matty ... if you popped off a cap then don't turn it on ..... send Viper John a PM and explain to him what happen, if it's just a cap he can fix it ...

    i don't even wanna know how you could abuse your card like that ^_^. if it's just a capacitor, then just solder it on yourself... assuming it's one of the big ones then they're pretty easy. Other than that, let a pro handle it =D
