    Can you post the information on what power supply you purchased? The issue with the D530 CMT is that the power supply design is non-standard. Although generally ATX size, it is slightly different, such that new power supplies installed leave a gap. At least that is what I have read on the HP support forums:

Yes it can be done. Just with a bigger power supply comes more cables.
And with a mini tower, it could get crowded inside your computer.

What graphics card is compatable for hp d530


I'm not going to go through a list for you, but I can tell that you don't have many options. The HP Compaq Business Desktop D530 uses a small form factor which means you don't have the same space as normal desktop users inside of your machine for the vast majority of display adapters. You would need at least a medium form factor for that.
The other problem is that your power supply is only 185W and can't supply the the amount of power needed for most desktop class display adapters.
The machine you are using wasn't designed to ever be used for gaming, and it shows. You would need to get a bigger computer case and higher watt (around 400 to 600 watt) power supply to support most desktop display adapters.

Hi guys, I have an issue with my old HP Compaq D530 CMT Desktop. The power light blinks 5 times when I power on the pc (Pre video memory error). The Hp site suggests to: 1 Reseat the DIMMs in the memory...


Try the DIMMs in another motherboard.

Download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and burn it to a CD-recordable disk.
Put just _one_ DIMM into your computer, and boot from that disk, to run an intensive "memory-test" of that DIMM. If it "passes" (about 30 minutes per 512MB), then repeat with the other DIMM.

Does my d530 CMT have a SATA connector?


Answers to your questions:
1. Yes
2. Very likely
3. a Google search should show you what the connectors look like.
4 HP/Compaq do a good job of providing documentation. Go to hp.com and put in your system information. You should be able to locate motherboard diagrams there. If you can't let me know and I'll try to locate them.
