HP D530 SFF, PSU replacement

I need to replace the PSU. I am having difficulty in removing it from the case to fit the new one. I have tried to locate a maintenance manual on the WEB in order to take the right steps in sequence but without success. Any help appreciated. I also wish to fit a new quieter Fan. Advise on removal of the old would be helpfull.

Ha just had the same problem myself, infact its easy. You must remove the rear plate of the machine - just 2 screws in the upper corners hold it on. the you can wriggle it off and slide the psu out the back. just make sure you untangle the power cables before you pull too hard, or you'll br replacing the mobo too :) hth f

You need to find out the motherboard make or a serial number. As this may have a slocket type fitted processor(on it's side) and makes you limited with fan types etc.

    There should be 3 or 4 screws on the outside of the case holding the psu in and sometimes 2 securing screws along the body, and it should just slide out of the casing, as when you buy a new one it will be fitted exactly the same, as they are normally universal.

    Just ensure that you get the same size as some compact pc's have a mini psu fitted.

Replacing the CR2032 on the d530 sff still result in internal clock resetting itself after a few days

In that case I suggest there is a processing fault on *********** board. You could try re-seating the uProcessor in its socket.

I have an hp d530 cmt motherboard with tray & would know if it would fit in an hp xw4100 case. I have not been able to locate a d530 case.

Most mother boards are loosely speaking "one size fits all". The newer the board the smaller generally. You will have to offer it up and see. It may mean you have to move a couple of pillars.
So long as the PSU leads fit, it sholud be OK.

Hp compaq d530 400 watt power supply

You will not find a power supply for this case. Why would you want to upgrade such an old computer? Get yourself a new one with amply power for your needs. If you are one that upgrades regularly, get a standard case with standard components that can be upgraded without the hassle of replacing proprietary form-factor compnents.
