Making sound kind of like Geiger counter

Bought refurbished hp d530 SFF. 2G mem, (added 1) making sound like geiger counter, more or less, when "computing", for lack of better word. Never had one before. Seems to work fine. Is this normal? What is the sound?

A light soft click noise when the drive access data is ok, as some brands are worse at this then others. if it does it alot then Thats the sound of a harddrive thats about to fail. I would backup the data you want to save.

this is what a bad harddrive sounds like

I have a HP Compaq d530 SFF with a 40 G hard drive. I want to upgrade to a hard drive of at least 80 G. Am I able to do this? Like to know also how much more RAM can I add I have 1.5 GBs now..


You can get a maximum of 4GB of ram.
Yes you can also upgrade your drive, probably to a lot larger than 80.

The following is a link to the manual that you can download, in PDF format, that has information on upgrading/adding both memory and hard disks for the HP d530 SFF. It has both diagrams and instructions.

You are missing the front headphone / microphone connector that plugs into the motherboard. Or a way to jump this to close the headphones so the sound will come out the back.

Expanding RAM on D530 SFF


They go right next to the current ones you have in there. If no extra RAM slots are available, you would have to take out your old RAM to make room for the new ones.

There are typically only 2 or 4 slots for RAM.
