You may check and see if it's set to the "internet time" -> "automatically syncronize with an internet time server", if there you have a wrong server, then it'll reset your time wrong, or if you have another timezone set in windows, than it'll update to that timezone.

secondly, if it's a hardware related issue, than it can be the battery

Have a d530c tower how do you add a sata drive?

Hi richo64
It seems your motherboard is not equiped with Sata plots :
If this is the case , you need to purchase a PCI Sata controller card with at least one internal Sata plot .
Disconnect power plug and make sure you are not static electrically loaded . Open tower by removing side panel . Install PCI card on an available PCI plot inside your tower . You will also need to acquire a Molex/Sata converting power cable and a Sata interface cable . Once done , install your Sata drive in an available place in your desktop and connect the cables .
Start your pc . If you have kept the old Pata drive in operation , immediatelly and repeatedly hit a F key ( often Fi or F3 or F8 , it depends on the machine ) to acces bios , select the Sata drive and fix the boot priorities .
Sata controller cards and cables are easy to find by googleling on the net or in any computer shop .
Best regards ,

I have hp d530 sff decktpo pc I can't able to go bios setting window while booting by pressing del or F10 key also pl suggest me.

Sometimes the button to get into the Settings/Bios is F1 or F2.. just go through and test each one of these out. Also sometimes just one press isn't enough, tap on the key a couple of times ot make sure the computer recognizes it.

Good luck!

When you unplug power cord it loses it settings even though cmos battery is good g

If the battery is good for sure and you tried a different battery just to be sure then you might want to try updating the BIOS. Go into the BIOS and see the version that is in there.

Then go here:

Type in your model number and then get to the download page and see what version is on the website. If the version of the BIOS on the website is newer then on your machine then download and install that one.

If you update the BIOS and it still can't keep the settings then you know at that point the motherboard is bad.

Hi my hp compaq d530c wont boot then it beeps four small beeps repeatedly. what could be the problem? it doesnt read the moniter at all

The problem is with your RAM. It is either damaged or its not perfectly fit in the slots. Remove it and clean the slots and insert it back. If the problem remains, replace the RAM.

My laptop is very slow...

1st off - do a restore on the computer to bring it back to factory settings. This will clean it up and speed it up as well. 2nd you need more ram . Ram is very cheap and Vista needs lots of ram to run.
Thishis should solve your problem. Total cost to you is about $50.00

Hp d530c

Hi NickJames,

I think its your CPU IC. Its overheating and the auto shut safety sequence is being activated and hence this problem. It can also be that the temperature settings in your CMOS setup has been set to a wrong / low setting wherein the PC shuts off even if your CPU warms up a little. Check that by going into CMOS settings. Only after confirming that, have your motherboad checked & also your HDD for a short in the power supply section. Perhaps a capacitor is leaky or short or a diode is short. Send it to an authorised repair center.
