It looks more like a resistor than a capacitor and there's no way of telling its value. It's very rare for surface mounted resistors to burn up like that and I wouldn't be surprised if the failure of another component is the cause. You could try replacing it with something like a standard 100K 1/4W resistor if your soldering skills are up to the job and see what happens - nothing lost. It really looks like you need a new card.

 

Cheers
