What you could do, instead of finding the model number of the computer you can look at the model number of the motherboard which is imprinted on the board itself and then find out the limitations of the board which is what you are looking for in the first place.

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.

http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00059123/c00059123.pdf

Go to the "Hardware Upgrades" section.

1gb pc2700 333mhz ddr wont work


You may have just bought a stick of gum! This ram could have been sold on e-bay for any number of reasons. It's not likely that you can get your money back. Sometimes even identical appearing ram won't function with original ram. Check with tigerdirect.com on the web for ram and other computer parts. Good luck!

I would like to upgrade my motherborad and i dont know witch one to buy


Hello

You may have issues with upgrading the motherboard on a Small Form Factor (SFF) desktop computer. The issue is not the space for the motherboard - it is with the proprietary power supply that HP/Compaq use with these small desktop computers.

You will be forced to use the existing power supply which may not work (i.e. have the correct power connectors) for the new motherboard.

Let us know what your goals are for the motherboard upgrade (have more RAM installed, add a SLI video card, faster processor, etc) and we can assist with what is and is not possible.

Upgrade


In order to upgrade processors you will need a new mortherboard (if you want to use a core2duo). If your running a computer like that you will probably need a new case, memory, and an adequate power supply to run it and maybe another fan if your running a lot of stuff in there. You may need a new video card as well.

You could check at some used computer stores and see if you can upgrade your celeron processor to something faster. Compaqs are know to be trouble when you try to upgrade them.
