You can replace the caps manually if you really need to, google how.

This happened to my motherboard, except that it was about 12 capacitors instead of two.
I fixed it by buying some new caps online, then i soldered on the new ones and it works fine now.
I would just be careful if you do it, make sure the negative side of of the capacitor isn't on the positive,
and be careful not to cross leads or burn the board (i almost did).
