Solved!

SSD in HP Pavilion DV5-1207EO

HP Recommended

Hi!

I'm about to order a SSD and I'm wondering if it's possible to install this in the Pavilion DV5 and will it work properly?

Mikael,

 

What type of SSD are you looking at getting and what Operating System are you running right now currently - Windows 7?

Sorry, I forgot to wrote the details.


The SSD is OCZ (SLD3-25SAT3-120G) and I'm running Windows 7 32-bit.

I have an HP DV7 and a OCZ 120gb Solid 3 SSD running just fine in mine. I had to reinstall windows from scratch but it is working great. I would imagine that it would work just fine in the HP DV5. HP DV5 should accept SATA III without any problems.

I'm aware of the Windows reinstallation part, the thing that I wasn't sure was if the DV5 would accept the SSD itself but I might just try it. Thanks for the answer 🙂
