    Oh, no I mean the fuse on the board near the capacitor. Only replace it if it's blown.

    But you should replace the capacitor of the same style near it as well. It's really common for these old RIFA caps to fail.

    Hi all - installed the new cap and reassembled the computer. She boots and now works like she always did. Thanks for the help
