Better look for the manual of your motherboard or download it from the internet so that you cannot mess it up.

First step is to plug in a different monitor, if you have the same results then it would be a video card issue. If not then you have a bad VGA cable.

How to replace the motherboard in a Compaq D510 computer

The Compaq D510 desktop computer uses a U-ATX size motherboard that is smaller than the standard ATX size. If the motherboard on your Compaq computer has stopped working or you want to upgrade to a different motherboard with different expansion slots you can open the case and replace the motherboard.

to replace the motherboard, just follow these steps:

  • Double click on the "Smart Cover" icon on the desktop. Enter in the Smart Cover lock code if you have set one up and click on "Unlock" to disengage the hardware lock that prevents the case panel from being opened.

  • 2

    Click on the "Start" button at the bottom toolbar of the desktop and choose "Shut Down." Unplug all of the cables from the back of the computer once it has finished powering down.

  • 3

    Set the Compaq computer case on its side and remove the two screws connected to the top and bottom ends of the case panel. Slide the panel to the left and pull it directly off the case.

  • 4

    Disconnect the SATA cables running from the power supply, drive bays and processor fan to the motherboard. Remove the screws holding any expansion cards you may have previously installed into the AGP ports on the lower right side of the motherboard and then pull the cards out.

  • 5

    Pull back the clamp holding the processor fan on. Pull the fan and then the processor off of the motherboard. Pull off the RAM modules from the motherboard.

  • 6

    Remove the screws holding the motherboard into place and pull the entire motherboard directly out of the case. Check the orientation of the replacement motherboard and make sure the USB ports and AGP expansion card slots are facing towards the back of the case. Lay the new motherboard down into the case onto the mounting screws sticking out of the bottom panel.

  • 7

    Place the processor back into its socket on the motherboard and connect the fan on top. Snap back on the fan clamp. Place the RAM modules back into their slots. Re-connect all of the SATA cables to the drive bays and power supply.

  • 8

    Set the side panel back onto the case and re-connect the case screws. Connect all of the cables into the back of the case and power the computer back on. Wait for the operating system to load to make sure the motherboard is working properly.

  • 9

    Navigate back to the Smart Cover program, enter in the password, and press the "Lock" button.

    If the red light on Compaq Evo D510 P4 keeps on blinking and the PC wont start when you try to power your PC then whats the problem ?

    Power Supply.

    Weak voltage power rail, or more than one.

    (There are three power rails for the Power Supply used in your computer;
    1) The 3.3 Volt power rail
    2) The 5 Volt power rail
    3) The 12 Volt power rail.

    Wires with Orange insulation carry 3.3 Volts
    With Red insulation carry 5 Volts
    With Yellow insulation carry 12 Volts.

    Each wire is connected to one power rail in the Power Supply.
    {All Black wires are Ground wires}

    The Power Supply in your computer is an SMPS. Switched-Mode Power Supply, )

    I don't know what form factor your Power Supply is because you didn't state which model it is.
    Small Form Factor (SFF)
    Convertible Mini-Tower
    Ultra Slim Desktop

    Post additional questions in a Comment. Also state what model your Compaq Evo D510 is.

    How to plug front panal wires in mother board of compac evo d510 cmt?

    I realize that this posted problem is over 4 months old, but in the interest it may help someone;

    According to Compaq this is the motherboard used in the Evo D510 Convertible Mini-Tower,

    Observe the blue long female connector on the motherboard. This connector is where the 40-pin flat IDE ribbon cable for the Harddrive, plugs in.

    (On the above link; it may not work as a direct link. It is a PDF file you download.
    In case it does not work just by clicking on it; copy it, paste it into your address bar, press the Enter key )

    Scroll the page down to a little more than halfway. Observe the illustration of the motherboard to the Left of the page.
    (Has J22, J21, P23, J20, J40, P54, above it)

    Look at CR1, CR2, CR4, and P5
