and it should say Southbridge then Rev. if it is B3 then you have no problem. if B2 or B1 then you should contact hp to get it replaced for a B3 one.

And laptops aren't affected at all by the design error since they only use Sata Ports 1 and 2 _

Thats HDD and Optical DVD/RW/CD/RW Drives_

You're pretty much safe to say_ I read something a while back, might have to google it up but they say that laptops which only uses ports 1 & 2 are pretty much safe_
