Noticed blown resistor, what size resistor do I need?

While pulling my PS3 apart to fix the YLOD problem I saw the tell tale black mark on the mother board were one of the surface mount resistors blew. It has a 2 marked on the part. This part is located on the top of the mother board near the back at the HDMI port, directly below the board where it is marked COK-002 TH2501.

Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do?

More to the point, does anyone know what size I need to get and a quick place to get it?

The HDMI port is the first port next to the burnt spot on the board.

Shawn, any chance you could post a couple of image on where it is and the proximity to other "landmarks" on the board. There are quite a few components in that general area. You can import images on here, so anyone looking at your question will see what you are asking.
