Last night, my Windows 98 PC started hanging during power-on sequence. On visual inspection, I noticed a couple bulging capacitors on the slocket. The system works fine with another CPU installed. So, I'm guessing these capacitors need to be replaced. They have 2200uF 10v printed on them; I can't read what I assume is the manufacturer name. I found a bunch of results on an Internet search, but this isn't my area of expertise. Does anyone have suggestions on good replacement?

I'm not an expert but I've spent some time reading badcaps.net (hey, that makes me an internet expert 😀, they have gathered some lists there that you can use.
You should pay attention to ESR, heat resistance and physical dimensions also. Also you should make note of the polarity of the old caps before replacement.
