The HP 3005 has a design flaw and was notorious for blowing the the motherboard. We bought hundreds of these in our company and within 6 months they were dropping like flies. We contacted HP and even they recommended upgrading to the newer 3015 model. Sorry for the bad news but I wouldn't put too much time into trying to get it working.
