We have recently had many motherboards 2 or 3 years old (P3/800 era) die
from exactly this problem. One of the main component manufacturers produced
several months worth bad capacitors.

The other one that came to a conclusion is the Fujitsu hard disk problem.
Caused by a bad batch of ceramic used by Cirrus Logic to package one of
their IC's on the controller boards of Fujitsu disks.
