    What I meant was, judging by how lightly the machine was used, I would assume the failure would most likely be something that goes bad because of age like the capacitors rather than one of the chips that might go bad because of heavy use

    Use has very little to to with the overall failure rate. Where did you get that from? There are many contributors.

    Some components have a higher failure rate if they're not used regularly. Did you know that?

    Either way, my first course of action is to replace capacitors. If that doesnt fix it I'll have to look deeper.

    Can anyone tell me what capacitors I need based on the labels I posted? I figured out KIZ 473 mean 4700pF but that's about all I could really find.

    Got a new video card! I found a guaranteed working one on ebay for a good price so I scooped it up.
