Default Re: Capacitors in Computers

iam new in electronics and i have a few question about capacitors, can u test capacitor ESR value in circuit (computer motherboard or PSU)? because i tested some "bulge" capacitor on my motherboard using ESR70 and they showing low ESR but leaky capacitance, when i pull them all, it shows high ESR, is there any components in motherboard that affects the way ESR reads?, do bad caps generates so high capacitance than there normal/ original capacitance value? because i tested one 1000uf 16v (not in circuit) using my ESR70 it give me 0.06 ESR but 2,400 capacitance
