Bricked Mobo?

My apologies if I have not chosen the right thread. Replaced a leaking capacitor on a AS ROCK mobo. I managed to get a 3300 mF, but with higher voltage. Original was 6.3v, while the new one is 16v. After replacement, the pc booted as far as the XP logo only to switch off again. Now, it starts up for about 5 seconds only to switch off again. Any ideas, or has the Mobo been bricked? (BTW, capacitor polarity upon replacement was respected). Thank you.

Only way to find out is to test.

Replace the capacitor in question with another capacitor meeting the specifications of the original.
