    You know how to follow a circuit using a multimeter. Maybe just miss a connection, or you had multiple failures , Power on , few seconds, shuts down, sounds like a PSU. You don't even get to pre boot, right?

    Is the CMOS battery good? I'm sure, with your background, used a ESD protection ?

Check ebay as there are sellers that will sell you a single key sparing the trouble and expense of replacing the whole keyboard. They will come with detailed instructions.

Blue light special

I feel for you. HP makes a crummy product. That is why I never sell them anymore. Plus, as I do some warranty work for them, I get to see the problems up close. Their tech support usually sucks as well.

Hy hp d530 won't turn on


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.

My hp ze4300 will not turn on

Has there been a power surge meanwhile? If so, try unplugging the power cord, press the power button, reconnect power and try booting. Sometimes works.
