First step - Spotting bad caps (first url I found, I don't' particularly
endorse them, but it seems to cover the basics)
Second step - Learn to solder I'd recommend sparkfun.com or better a friend
who can solder
Third step - Learn to desolder, again I'd recommend sparkfun.com and a
number of things that were electronics that you no longer care about
Desoldering on a modern board kinda sucks and takes a fair bit of practice,
along with tools. Don't use a radio shack iron if you can at all avoid it.
