DV5T-2000, SATA or SATA II (3.0Gbps)?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking to put a SSD into this aging laptop, but I can't seem to find if it is SATA or SATA3

According to the manual, the original HDD it comes with is SATA. (http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02666786.pdf page 101), but does not say if the port is SATA or SATA II

Does anyone know the answer, or have this laptop and can check?

Thanks

It looks like it may support SATA III. Page 4 of the manual you linked to says it has an AMD SB820m Southbridge chipset, which if you look at page 32 of the manual for that, says it supports up to SATA III. (Ref : http://support.amd.com/us/Embedded_TechDocs/47283.pdf page 32)

Wow good catch, I would have never thought of looking there

However, I should have mentioned in the OP, it has an Intel i5, therefore having the Intel HM55 Express chipset, but it looks like the chipset as well supports SATA III (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/chipsets/mainstream-chipsets/mobile-chipset-hm55.html)

I'll buy the SSD and see how it goes, Thank you!
