    Hi, I have the same issue. I took the ethernet cable out, still happens. Both the power light and hard drive light blink red. Could it be a bad power switch or battery? Thank you, Sam:

    I have the same problem in 2 separate D530s.  I updated the BIOS in both and ONE of the D530s now works fine, but one still won't fire up with the ethernet cable plugged in.  I have matched both BIOS' so I have no idea why one still does not fire up with the ethernet cable plugged in.  If I wait for about 5 minutes AFTER WinXP fires up, I can plug in the ethernet cable and all is well.  Any time before 5 minutes and it dies.
    I doubt it is a motherboard or power supply issue.

I have the same problem but it seems to be related to the NIC. When I start without the ethernet cable plugged in it's fine, plug in the ethernet cable and the machine stops dead. I can't even start the PC with the cable plugged in.

Dear sir, my desktop is hp compaq dc7600 sff. everytime when it starting to boot the following info is appears: "512- chassis fan is not found. press f1". after pressing f1 it's starting to...

The sytem checks for the Chasis fan during the bootup (startup) process. The fan is connected to the motherboard via cable. Turn off the system. Open it and make sure the the cable is connected properly. While the PC is open, press the power button and check if the fan turns on. If not the chasis fan may have gone faulty, which needs replacement. If you find it faulty, you may find and replace the fan by removing the old/ faulty fan by removing the 4 screws and installing the new one.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

The CPU Fan is not working. Contact Compaq or go on Ebay and see if you can find a replacement fan. If you continue using your PC without the CPU fan operating, you will burn out the CPU. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a pleasent day.

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC

The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.
