Default Motherboard fixable?

I used the trial and error method and found out my motherboard was totally dead on my desktop. Everytime I tried to turn it on it would make a sizzling noise for some reason. The motherboard was an older ASUS P5N-E style. It was a great motherboard and im wondering if there is any way to fix a dead motherboard? Havent had the chance to take a closer look but what should I look for? bulging capacitors? leaking capacitors?

Do you know where the sound is coming from on the motherboard?
