I'll take a trip to the electronics store in the near future, an I'll let you all know how it turns out.
Again, thanks for the help!
Update 2: The power LED is lighting up, so obviously the secondary side isn't completely dead as it is.
- Leaking: C950, C966, C961
- Heat bubbles: C956
The heat bubbles (at least I think it is) on C956 worries me. I don't think it's within my power to repair this PSU.
