          It should be on the capacitor. It may be coded but it should be there. What characters are printed on it?

              I would be more worried that it didn't get swallowed by the three year old -- especially if you can't find it.  It looks like the capacitor is electrolytic which I read is harmful. I would be phoning the doctor right now.

                It takes a lot to break those off. I'm guessing there's more damage than that. Most likely printed circuit damage too. And +1 on the hazard; However, the capacitors are normally sealed pretty well.


                I think your best bet is to repost with the board type in the title. Folks with the same board are more apt to open the thread. You may get someone that has that board and is willing to look. I've never seen Intel make the circuit diagrams available so the only way to find out is directly from the factory or from someone that has one. But I seriously doubt the factory monitors this forum. The next step is to bite the bullet and buy a new board. Chalk it up to the cost of parenthood.
