Update: the capacitor was successfully replaced. Still had problems and then ran the extended KS54 to find out that the extended HD failed the tests. Now it's time to expand the internal drive. Ordered a WD10EARS drive from TigerDirect. Plan of attack is to divorce the external drive, and then use Winmfs to copy the contents of the original HD and then copy back to the expanded new HD. Thanks for the help and pointers!
