Make sure you are set up for correct monitor. If keyboard lights flash and HD beeps, but no picture, you may have an incorrect monitor setup. In BIOS, make sure you are set for proper internal/external video, and be sure to plug into right port.

Assuming you have turned it on and checked the plug to make sure it hasn't been jarred loose. Check both end of plug, power strip and outlet.
Does wall outlet have power? Does power strip have other things plugged in to it? do they work? If so, check computer power cord. Is it in good working order? If you have a second one, try it in place of this one, both ways. That is, try computer cord at other device, then device cord on computer. If everything works so far, its the power fuse. It can be located on the back or inside. I suggest contact local computer shop fopr additional assistance

SOURCE: widescreen resolution...

Every video card has it's max resolution. To see what your max is for the d530, if your running a version of XP. Open Control Panel. Open Display. This will open Display Properties. Click the Settings Tab. Listed there is screen resolution, sliding the marker all the way to More will give you your Max resolution. I have a high end video adapter & my max resolution only goes to 11280x1024. You may have to contact HP/Compaq. The link listed contains updated drivers for the d530 but there is a bunch listed because each d530's have different internal devices.
You can chat with HP/Compaq at this link:
This is your best shot! Good luck.

I have the same problem and I found out it was the fan of the video card cause the noise. Ton of users own this computer have the same problem, click the following link and see
The hardware problem is cause by the GeForce 9500GS video board that cannot be fixed. If your computer still under warranty, contact HP techniocal support and replace another model or another brand video board, if not,buy another video card and replace it yourself. Remember, don't use the GeForce 9500GS video board, all this video card will have noise problem after a few months.

SOURCE: Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC

SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.

What are the steps I should use when re-installing Windows 7 on my HP Tower PC?

George, your problem may be a fragmented drive...
you need to run a defrag and scan disk.

it's done the same way in Windows 7 as it was in earlier versions of Windows:
  1. Open the "Computer" window
  2. Right-click on the drive in question
  3. Select the "Tools" tab
  4. in now
  5. Then ...In the Error-checking area, click <Check Now>
If this does not help, you need to run a Recovery from the disk you created when you setup the PC.
If you did not create the Recovery Disk...go to all programs, HP folder, Utilities. Create Recovery Disk.

How do I stop an HP DX2400 computer from causing my Cisco Switches to disable

Check the Event Viewer.

What about network collision between the two? Correct VLAN on the port? Are the switch ports set to auto detect? If not what is the speed? 100 Full? Sync the HP NICs.

Does the HP have any special software that dictates a certain throughput?
