SOURCE: HP D530 Video card upgrade
If the HP D530 has an AGP slot, which I think it does, then yes you can install the Radeon HD 4350 card.
Make sure you have the correct driver for the video card.

Hope this helps.

much trial-and-error, I finally figured out the solution for this
common issue with certain HP Pavillion models. It turns out to be a
design flaw with the front-panel memory card
reader. Somehow the card reader's firmware gets scrambled, and it
prevents the computer from booting. You can test this on your machine
by temporarily disconnecting the card reader cable at the motherboard header. Voila - I'll bet you $1 that your computer will now boot!
The solution is buried deep inside this HP tech support document. The card reader firmware needs to be reset.
Here\'s how to fix it once and for all:
1) With the computer power unplugged (duh), open up the case & disconnect the card reader cable at the card reader itself - NOT the end that connects to the motherboard header. Make sure the cable end is not touching any metal components before proceeding to step 2 (another duh).
2) With the cable still disconnected, fire up the computer. The tech support doc says to let it boot into Windows and stay there for about 5 minutes.
3) Shut the computer down and reconnect the cable to the card reader.
4) Turn your computer back on - your memory card reader will work and, most importantly, the computer will no longer hang at POST!
I suspect that when you fire up the computer without the cable connected, the card reader is designed to reset its firmware by grounding out through the case - sort of like a CMOS Reset jumper on a motherboard.
I hope this solution is helpful to others.

The Nvidia GeForce 6150 is Integrated Graphics. Also known as 'On-Board'.
Integrated Graphics 'borrows' some of the computers system resources. The processor and ram memory.
Your computer needs all of these system resources to run the Operating System, and also a program like an intensive graphics game.
Solution? Install a dedicated graphics card. A graphics card has it's own processor. GPU
(Graphics Processing Unit, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU)
It also has it's own ram memory. Graphics ram memory.
This frees up the computers system resources.
Recommendation? Install a graphics card. Get away from the Integrated Graphics.
You need to know what expansion slot your motherboard has for a graphics card. There is the PCI expansion slot, the AGP expansion slot, and the PCI Express x16 expansion slot, that is used for a graphics card. Hopefully yours is a PCI Express x16 slot.
The PCI Express x1 slot, is NOT used for a graphics card. Just thought I would mention that.
I concour, that using an Nvidia GeForce graphics card in the 9 Series, is a good idea. It's a 'Best Bang for the Buck' type of graphics card, at the moment. Perhaps the GeForce 9800GT, or the GeForce 9800GTX?
Make SURE, your power supply has enough wattage, and enough Amp's on the 12 volt power rail, to support it.

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.
