Question about HP Compaq Business d530 Ultra-Slim PC Desktop
My hp d530 slim factor will not start: Power LED does not go on but 5v led on mother board is on:
I had the same problem with my HP D530. It would not start but the motherboard green led light stays on. At first, I thought its the power supply. I DISCONNECT the power plug and removed all my RAMS, AGP video card and I then took off the BATTERY (bios) and replace it with another one from my old computer that had the same battery PART NUMBER. Place the power cable back on and turn on the PC. If the CPU fan comes on, your motherboard is ok. Now UNPLUG the power cord again and place the RAMS. Plug the power cord again and check if the CPU fan comes on. If it did, the computer is properly working. I had mine working but for some reason, it stop working when I install two different AGP video card on it so I had to use and settle with the built in video.

It can't be the RAM, it would be beeping if the RAM was not installed properly. If it was and they were bad, it would fail in Windows.
We've had numerous similar problems to yours with our D530's. Check the motherboard to see if any of the capacitors (round barrel shaped components) are swollen (round on top) or leaking. It is a known manufacturers defect and they were replacing those motherboards for free, unfortunately that program just ended.
If the capacitors are all flat on top, its probably the power supply. We've had four go bad in the past month. They sometimes smell like something is burning before they go bad. The D-530 model is unfortunately our most unreliable model ever, they are junk. Good luck.

well, Two things arise here, RAMS, or bad power supply. another, really stressfull things cab be bad motherboard.
if you have warranty for the D530, I recommend change your system.
or go near computer shop to see if the RAMS are the culprit.
