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 ,
fanaudi .

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.

Notebook heating problem(urgent help)

You bios versions start at f.03,f.04,f.05, f.07, f.08,,,

The date and version that you posted does not match and bios version for your model.

The only reason you update a bios is if it falls under the problems
listed for the new bios to correct.

Say your lap came with f.05, the only reason you would update to f.07 is because you had a graphic error,that the new update fixed.

The link below is the page for your drivers, if you look at bios,it shows the newest,if you click on version,you will see all the ones
that where made.

You should double check to make sure that you have the right bios version.

Bios problem

Most BIOS settings can be set to the default setup by selecting default settings and save & exit, and if there isn't this option you can remove the BIOS battery for 1/2 + hour insert the BIOS battery, boot up, go into the BIOS setup and configure the BIOS date and time setting.

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.

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.

Install a second VGA card on HP D530c

Are you upgrading from the basic video that is built into your computer's motherboard? If you are trying to boost your performance by installing an after-market video card, you may need to disable the built-in video by changing the settings in your computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System). When your computer boots, it probably displays a message that says something similar to: Press F2 to enter "setup". This is how you get into the BIOS for your computer. You can page through the BIOS and see the different settings you can change. If you are unfamiliar with making BIOS changes, follow two rules: 1. Write down the original setting BEFORE you make any change. That way you can undo what you did if it causes a problem. 2. Only make ONE change at a time. It's too hard to troubleshoot a problem if you make several changes at once. Look for something that talks about Onboard video or built in video. Highlight that item and change it to "disabled" or "off". Save the changes to the BIOS before exiting. Then reboot your computer. The new video card should work now.
