I'm not sure if i have Sata III support on my laptop, and i don't know where to find it...here's my specs:

Brand: HP Pavilion DV7-3197eo
Processor: Intel Core i7 QM720 @ 1.60GHz
Graphic Driver: Nvidia GeForce GT 230M
Ram: 6GB DDR3

I really need your helping hand...

  1. even if your laptop does not support Sata III, a Sata III drive should be backwards compatible with Sata II; therefore, it should work on the laptop but only at 3GB speed
  2. But how i can make sure i have Sata III support too?

    Hiya Aslan;

    Enter your laptop model for a yahoo or Google search and see if any technical specs come up regarding sata III support on that model. Maybe an HP website search would prove effective for this info as well.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers
