What wattage power supply do you have? and did you install the video software from the disk, or did you download it from the manufacturers' websites? (I recommend the latter)

    hp usually ships a 200 or 250 watt PWS with it's units. maybe check on a bigger PWS (350 or 400 watt). worse case scenario is either a faulty mobo or a bad pci slot (ie, faulty mobo).

These are network boot cards, basically it's looking for boot options from across your network. You can change the boot options in your BIOS or there is usually a key combination to press that is displayed on screen during boot to shut of the PXE boot of your network card.

No it is Good enough, You should just make sure that it shouldn't heat-up and is properly placed, as in low-top casings it is difficult to give them enough room, if the Fan for the Card is working properly, then no need to worry.


I hope you will have a clear picture now.

I have quite a few d530-SFF systems. They have the ''standard PCI'' slot ''carrier'' that plugs into 1 of the 3 PCI slots on the M/B and has 2 full-size PCI slots. I installed a PNY Nvidia GeForce 8400GS...


I checked the specs on the video card thinking it must be PCI-e and not old style PCI but in fact there is an old style PCI meant for just what you are trying to do. The problem is the memory at 512meg plus the GPU put your power requirements at 300w and I bet you have at best 185w in those units so they won't even start and you won't be able to cram the bigger power supply in there. Go with a card that has lower specs and 64 - 128 ram and you should be ok. Just check the power req. JC

Hp compaq d530 400 watt power supply


You will not find a power supply for this case. Why would you want to upgrade such an old computer? Get yourself a new one with amply power for your needs. If you are one that upgrades regularly, get a standard case with standard components that can be upgraded without the hassle of replacing proprietary form-factor compnents.
