Question about HP Compaq d530 PC Desktop
I turn the power button on and nothing happens. The green light on the mother board blinks, but nothing else happens. the fans don't go on either. i've unpluged everything and it still won't turn on. a friend suggested that the memory slot is defective so i should replace the motherboard. this is a refurbished machine and is only a couple of months old.
I have a similar problem:
My Compaq d530 was running fine until one day during plugging in a USB device (MP3 player) the system completely stopped working. The only thing which is active is the green LED on the mainboard.
I have checked several things and have found the following:
- IDE cable had burn marks!! (nasty)
- USB connection cable which runs from the front to the motherboard has changed in color. (darker green while all other connector have e more light white color.)
These are the signs of a brun out, but I do not have any solution to repair this.
Economically the best thing to do is buy a second hand (or new) system. (d530 are about 60 euros these days (march 2009). Hardware parts can maybe salvaged.
