In order to upgrade processors you will need a new mortherboard (if you want to use a core2duo). If your running a computer like that you will probably need a new case, memory, and an adequate power supply to run it and maybe another fan if your running a lot of stuff in there. You may need a new video card as well.

You could check at some used computer stores and see if you can upgrade your celeron processor to something faster. Compaqs are know to be trouble when you try to upgrade them.

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.

I would like to upgrade my motherborad and i dont know witch one to buy


Hello

You may have issues with upgrading the motherboard on a Small Form Factor (SFF) desktop computer. The issue is not the space for the motherboard - it is with the proprietary power supply that HP/Compaq use with these small desktop computers.

You will be forced to use the existing power supply which may not work (i.e. have the correct power connectors) for the new motherboard.

Let us know what your goals are for the motherboard upgrade (have more RAM installed, add a SLI video card, faster processor, etc) and we can assist with what is and is not possible.

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC


The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.
