Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1430NX (PS566AA) PC Desktop
I purchased a usb port 2.0 with 5 ports. four are external and one is internal. We have taken out the old Ethernet port and have installed the USB one, however I don't know if it is hooked up correctly.. There are some cables with nothing attached and the internal usb port doesn't seem to have anywhere to hook up. We have had wireless internet installed and it runs really slow. Also I bought a 8gb mp4 player and I cannot get it to work. It keeps telling me that I need a usb port 2.0.I would like some assistance in correcting the installation. Thank you Marilyn
What OS,? was it internet connected during all that? it must.
If XP its now a dead OS, for 3 years, , hp nor microsoft support
XP nor does HP support old SR1430nx.(now)
you installed PCI card ,called USB, no name stated or part number
use the drivers from THEM< the maker of the card.
there are always extra cables, most are power supply cables. in DT.
A tech would look and instantly see where they go and there purpose, explaining that is long long story.
my guess is the quesiton is formed backwards. lite me guess
Running XP "need some 8gb/mp4 player working."
this is the title deal but what is it? is it an external box tghat plays, DVD or is it just a software player. name that it is more clearly, even photos work 1000x best.
you find out XP does do USB well, , sure it does it horribly
XP does not support all USB devices, (some sure) but many not.
and must have SP3 installed, good luck finding that on dead OS
and not get infected with virus, XP is a Virus Magnet.
Getting XP up on new USB devices is a chore, no/?
why not ask the maker of both the mp4 player if it supports
XP. and then ask the card maker USB if it supports XP'
sr1430 (circa 2005?) 12years old, 2 past HP support.
what make s you think, this old pc with 512mb memory and slow pc and slow video are up to the large demands of videos movies.
the front of the case (reading old review from2005)
shows a USB 2 port.
and that is wires there that go to the motherboard, USB2 jack.
if unplugged this wire USB2 there will be dead.
the mother board has a USB chip, and port.
but needs drivers you dont have, from HP that are no longer
how to cure that, you add a new PCI card, from a maker that supports
XP, , but who does that now in 2017.
here is one with the VIA chip set for USB
note how it says box has PCI card, and CD driver.
with XP accept no cards, lacking DRIVERS.

Your PC has VISTA loaded (according to the HP web specs)
This printer has no specific driver for VISTA but basic functionality is supported by VISTA without the need to load a seperate driver.
The printer connects via a USB cable to the PC and should be detected automatically by VISTA whe the printer is turned on.
The original CD would have drivers for an earlier vesrion of windows (98 or XP) so you should uninstall any programs that were installed offthe disk.
Post back results or further questions for more assistance

SOURCE: How to install new hard drive
External drives have come a long way and run almost as fast as many internal drives. If your need for extra hard drive space is pretty much driven by the Microsoft Flight Simulator game, you could get by with using an external drive. A few things, though: Make sure your system is supporting USB 2.0 (it should be) and that the drive runs at least 5400rpm. External HDD's run off standard 120v AC power.
Otherwise, if you want to get an internal drive, you can certainly get another ATA-133 drive. But SATA is faster and your computer may support it. The D530 CMT (convertible mini-tower) definitely does. But there is also the D530 SFF (small form factor), and D530 USD (ultra slim desktop)--not sure if those are rigged for SATA support.
As for maximum hard disk size supported, that's up to the operating system (e.g. Windows XP vs. Vista). You likely won't need any bios updates because of a new hard drive installation. However, its not a bad idea to review the BIOS update release notes to see what they're addressing.

You will need to disable your pc speakers. If you are running Windows XP then you can do this through control panel - Sounds and audio devices. Your external speakers should be working then if you have the correct audio software for the motherboard.
