Basically, the stuff in the system stripdown guide is for functioning systems - it sorta runs outta gas when trying to deal with severly borked systems. So, that being the case, it was likely that there was a deep hardware issue that most of the stripdown wouldn't reveal - and those areas are the one's that are left when you completely strip the system down (generally the PSU, mobo, and CPU).
Although bad capacitors aren't as common as they used to be - they still do pop up (or should I say "blow out"?) on occasion. I'd also suggest checking to see if the bad caps may be covered by some sort of warranty by the manufacturer.
