Solved HP DV4-1430US - Supports Sata II or III ? Tags: SATA Notebooks Hewlett Packard Laptops Last response: January 18, 2012 12:00 AM in Laptop Tech Support Share AndrePF January 8, 2012 6:50:24 PM Hi. I have an old notebook, the HP DV4-1430US, Core 2 Duo T6500, 4GB RAM 800Mhz, 320GB HDD... which I want to upgrade by installing a SSD... I tried to find a tool to check for it's specs in ubuntu (11.10) but I couldnt find any real information, only that it has the ICH9 Controller... I tried to check at Intel's website but couldnt find specific information regarding it's SATA capability. So, does my notebook supports SATA II or SATA III? If it's SATA II, I will buy OCZ Vertex 2 SSD.. If it's SATA III, I will buy OCZ Agility III SSD... Any other infos needed just ask me. Sorry for the stupid question, but it's my first time messing around with this kinda of subject. Thanks, Andre.
