Help ID Burned component on G5 logic board

Hi all,

I am unable to locate the identity of this burned component on the logic board of my Power Macintosh G5 2.0 DP (PCI-X 2)

http://everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/...

It is labeled L32 and resides at the end of the AGP slot nearest the dvi connector. It has no markings or values.

As far as markings I dunno. On circuit boards L is typically an inductor. You may have seen their bigger counterparts in older electronics as a wire wrapped around a ring. They are used as current limiters and in passive filters mostly. You may be able to take the part off the board and there may be markings on the backside, but it's hit or miss, it also looks as if you may have some trace damage. If you can get ahold of a schematic and find the value you might try calling digikey (# at digikey.com) and talking to a tech. When they ask about the package it's a surface mount or SOIC.

Thanks. That helped me. I was not able to find a digikey part number even with their online chat help. I took the part off the logicboard and found no readable id numbers even under magnification with light. assuming I find a like computer, how can I measure the smt items specs?

Here is a more detailed pic with the item taken off the board.
