Re: Expanding RAM on D530 SFF

They go right next to the current ones you have in there. If no extra RAM slots are available, you would have to take out your old RAM to make room for the new ones.

There are typically only 2 or 4 slots for RAM.

Try installing the original RAM and see if the computer boots up.
If it does then the other RAM modules maybe incompatible or faulty.
Try using additional or new of the same make and speed as your original RAM.

My HP Compaq d530 SFF has more than 1.7gb of RAM. It has 2.40gb processor but i can't install windows 7. i don't know why?

Probably not compatible with Win7. Check HP's web site for that model. You might find out what operating systems are supported.

I have a HP Compaq d530 SFF with a 40 G hard drive. I want to upgrade to a hard drive of at least 80 G. Am I able to do this? Like to know also how much more RAM can I add I have 1.5 GBs now..

You can get a maximum of 4GB of ram.
Yes you can also upgrade your drive, probably to a lot larger than 80.

The following is a link to the manual that you can download, in PDF format, that has information on upgrading/adding both memory and hard disks for the HP d530 SFF. It has both diagrams and instructions.

Go to the "Hardware Upgrades" section.

Remove the panel and take the RAM outof the slot. Clean the slot and the RAM card connections . Check the CMOS batttery on the mother board. if the voltage islower than 2.5V replace .
Now start and set up the settings once again as the PC starts.
Use a good registry cleaner to check, a good antivirus to scan , delete all temp files, cookies and defragment.

You may have just bought a stick of gum! This ram could have been sold on e-bay for any number of reasons. It's not likely that you can get your money back. Sometimes even identical appearing ram won't function with original ram. Check with on the web for ram and other computer parts. Good luck!

ATI Radeon 9250 PCI card not recognised.

Make sure the slot isn't disabled either by jumper settings or in the bios, and the card is securely inserted in the slot. If these aren't the case, you have yourself a bad card, or a bad slot.
