I have the same problem but I think it is a PSU problem because the auxilliary fans for both the PSU and the Processor are not even turning on when I turn on the PC. There is a green light on the mobo. Where can I get a replacement PSU and how much could it be?

According to the HP website, your processor is not properly installed. It says to make sure your processor is properly seated. Good luck!

I don't completely agree, this could be a number of things. Check to make sure that all connections inside the case are secure. Remove the memory and re-seat it, making sure to get it all the way in. I have also seen this be a power supply problem ($40) The power supply could not be giving it enough power to run the entire system. Also check the large (20 or 24 pin) plug that goes from the power supply to the motherboard.
Good Luck!

My compaq d530 sff is just flashing the red light what is the problem


It will blink a number of times, pause, start again.

You need to count the number of times the LED blinks between pauses.

then go here to see what the box is trying to tell you

Well when I turn the computer on the light flashes green then it flashes red what does that mean?


Means that you have warning about your hardware. Go to HP site for more info and what lights mean.Not to scare you, but that is usually something bad with power.

HP COMPAQ D530 RED BLINKING LIGHT WITH BEEPING SOUNDS.


4 beeps & 4 flashes mean problem with the power supply. For my experience, most of the time the PSU is good, it is just overloaded.

For more LED and Beep messages, check this link:

Pc start-up failure


It could be overheating. Make sure all the components and fans inside the tower a clean of dust. Get a can of compressed air and blow all the dust out. You could also try removing and re-seating all your pc cards, memory sticks and cables.

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.

HP Compaq d530


it all depends on the number of flashes , pause, repeat.
Since the problem did not indicate any beeps her is the following info


Power LED blinks RED 2 times, one every second, followed by a
2-second pause. = Processor Thermal Protection Activated


3 blinks 1 second apart = Processor not installed (not an indicator for a bad processor).

4 blinks 1 second apart .= Power Failure (power supply is overloaded)

Other possibilities are:
5 blinks 1 second apart No memory
6 blinks 1 second apart No graphics
7 blinks 1 second apart System board failure (detected prior to video)
8 blinks 1 second apart Invalid ROM
