    I recently picked up a dead PC in the hopes it was a simple power supply problem, but after some testing it's still no go. However, it was cheap enough it was worth my while just for the extra parts. Anyway, I was about to toss the motherboard when I noticed (for my first time ever on a dead motherboard,) what appeared to be the problem. So, more in the terms of practice/hobbyist than returning the board to function, what are these and is it replaceable part?

    From color seems like ferite bead, but it's going near capacitor, so it should be burned SMD capacitors. :)
    change low impediance capacitors near CPU socket, and change those SMD capacitors. :) you can find them almost on every PCB :D look for same size only. :) try to read names of these parts on PCB. :)

    they're quite big :D Yesterday I was soldering PSP parts that were that small that I even couldn't grab them with tweezers, of course I failed, because how can I solder part which I can't grab and place in right place. :)
