Haven't seen bad cap issues on these boards yet. Yep P4SD(-LA) rev 1.09 as made by Asus on special order for HP/Compaq.

You can use this board as drop-in replacement:
It won't even BSOD when first started, has the same mass-storage controller driver.

It's the last one relatively easy available here locally. Ofcourse you need to get the front panel connectors to cooperate, nothing a stanley knife or small screwdriver won't fix to release and reset the pins in the connector blocks.

hello and thank you, i keep looking for info all around... yeah blown caps appear quite often, specially those 1000uf/6.3v around
yeah looks like the info is very restricted :(

that replacement is unavailable to me, but i havent gone to that solution yet due to the fact that is not supported right here, i might but still have the need to repair these boards, i cant just replace i wish i could.

thanks again-

Alright I have been extensively been researching this board for about 2 weeks and every lead I take brings me back here. I've been trying to get this board to post for a while now with no luck. I've gotten so frustrated i even went so far as to pull the heat sink off and low an behold there was a pin bent (arge!) but I've got a few other socket 478 cpus lying about so I popped a replacement in and still no luck. I do however have a little bit of knowledge on there origins of this board. It comes out of a Compaq d530 convertible mid tower. A model I could only find on there business support page shown here:


About half way down one the page there is a Service and Maintenance information section. I'm using Firefox so i had to right click and save as for the pdf to open right but it gives a wonderful step by step procedure to messing with the CMOS and security.

Having just found this link and its being 6 in the morning I'm going to go to sleep and give it a try tomorrow. Will post back my success or failure. Wish you others some luck.
