How do I find out if my motherboard support sata 3gb/s

Hey, I currently broke my laptop's hard drive by dropping it so I'm going to get a new hard drive. I want to find out if my motherboard supports Sata 3gb/s before I go out and buy one and finds it doesn't work. The laptop I broke was the Toshiba Satellite P755-S5390 and the model number for the hard drive was mk6476gsxn.

I want to find out if I can see if my motherboard supports it without booting windows because the laptop's hard drive is broken as said before. Also, I don't care if I have to take apart my laptop.

  1. yes is SATA-3Gb/s as you can see in the link, in the section of original hard drive.

    BUT sata is retrocompatible and you wouldn´t have a problem anyway.
  2. Your original HDD is SATAII, but you can buy either SATAII or SATAIII type. If you are in USA you can get the deal ( Seagate Solid State Hybrid) from newegg.com.
    The Solid State Hybrid is faster than regular HD, but more expensive than the regular.
    Here is your HD specification: http://www.libertyestore.com/products/TOSHIBA/NEW/MK6476GSXN.html
