Thanks for your answer.

Its hard to find a 62uf capacitor, is a 68uf capacitor also good?

@xcesv4c At the end of the day i'm home, then i look for the 820xxxx number on the logic-board.


Yes you can use a higher capacitor.


You will need to solder on a new one,. What is the 820-XXXX number listed on the motherboard? There are many different types of boards for these laptops

yordimeijers that is reference designator C7372 which is a 62UF 11V 20% Tant(alum)-Poly(mer) capacitor in a Case B2S-1 package. this particular model is a NeoCapacitor made by NEC/Tokin. Remember that with capacitors you can increase the capacitance as well as the voltage in case you have trouble matching it.
