LED light is orange but computer is on.

it sounds like you may have overloaded the PSU, best thing to try would be to take out the dvd burner and and try booting again, if this doesn;t have any affect it may mean you need a new psu (power supply).

HP d530 PC - SATA Harddisk - Chassis does not close any more


They make SATA cables with a 90 degree connection on one end.
Hopefully this will solve your clearance problems with your case.

Here is a link to website that carries these.

They work great and fit tight against the drive.

Hope this helps,

BIOS doesn't find SATA HDD

Hi fallacy,

If you have the system disks and you can boot from CD, I would just follow the prompts to reload the operating system. If the computer cannot see the CD or HardDrive you need to reset the BIOS setting to factory default settings and that should restore the drives to be used. Note: Hard Drive should be Primary Master and CD-Rom, (not DVD-Rom if you have one) should be Secondary Master. If you have a DVD Rom drive I recommend unplugging both power and data cords from it and making sure the CD-ROM is set to Secondary Master, NOT Secondary Slave.

This should allow you to boot to a CD and reload the operating system. Unfortunately your files are lost.
