what would happen if one silicone glued an on board loose capacitor using silicone ????????? does silicone have effects on the printed circuit board (pcb) would it conduct electricity ?? would it change data in the computer since data on the mother board is represented in "1" and "0"
just did it today on an old cpu of mine the capacitor was shaky but had not come off completely so i applied silicon on it and am worried wouldn't want to turn on the computer and have a blow
down below are the photos attached

You should be fine. Many years ago I was professionally involved with hardware modifications (bug fixes and improvements) to computer PCBs, we used silicone sealant (clear) to secure any wire adds and additional components to the board. Later we found that super glue worked even better, not so messy and little or no drying time. ( we used a thin jell type plus fixer).
