I have experienced this problem recently. It is a simple and inexpensive (~$50 shipped to your door...) solution to replace the motherboard. I don't repair motherboards so I cannot give advice on replacing capacitors.

My hp d530 is suddenly swithing off

Could be an overheating issue. You can open the case and see if the cooling fan over the CPU is spinning when the PC is operating. If not, you should replace it.

If there is a lot of dust inside, you may want to blow it off with an air compressor, but power off and disconnect the computer first. Also remember to stop the cooling fan from spinning when struck by air from the compressor (you can use a wooden pencil to stop it) to avoid damaging it.

Let me know if this helps, best luck

These computer are know to have bad capacitors. Check and ensure that you dont have swollen capacitor on the motherboard. The HP Compaq desktops are notorious for this. I am almost certain you have bad capacitors.

HP D530 Will not start:

It can't be the RAM, it would be beeping if the RAM was not installed properly. If it was and they were bad, it would fail in Windows.

We've had numerous similar problems to yours with our D530's. Check the motherboard to see if any of the capacitors (round barrel shaped components) are swollen (round on top) or leaking. It is a known manufacturers defect and they were replacing those motherboards for free, unfortunately that program just ended.

If the capacitors are all flat on top, its probably the power supply. We've had four go bad in the past month. They sometimes smell like something is burning before they go bad. The D-530 model is unfortunately our most unreliable model ever, they are junk. Good luck.
