My 1040ste has been unused for about 6 months and now freezes after booting from floppy - occasionally bombs but mostly just freezes. I can move the mouse briefly and then boom freezes. Tried booting without a floppy but the same result. I have closely checked the caps and all look well with the exception of the big 4700uf 16v in the middle of the board which isnt bulging but appears to have a crustiness around the left side pin. Should i go ahead and replace this - will post a photo if it helps.
Thanks for any help
