Hello, I am wondering if these parts are compatable with an HP pavilion dv9000 series, as I am upgrading my sister's computer.

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Intel Core i3-2120T Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz LGA 1155 35W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32120T

Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB (2 x 2GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996646

And thank you in advance.

As cryptodan says model number to be 100% sure on CPU and memory however,

I would not expect the dv9000 series to be able to use a sandy bridge due to age and no bios support as well as the dv9000 series uses DDR2 not DDR3.

Thus DDR3 won't work either.

The hard drive will not work since the dv9000 is a laptop and can only take 2.5" drives and you are referencing a Desktop 3.5" drive.

Note that all laptops use 2.5" drives

What would make a difference in that laptop is a SSD (Solid State Drive). It will only help things that load and save to the hard drive. Examples would be Loading windows, shutting down windows. Loading programs.
Even then you really want to use them with Windows 7 and I seem to recall that came with Windows Vista?

Good Luck
Roger

Thank you for the help, and, rotor123, I am building a custom computer for my family too, and we are already getting a windows 7 package, so I am using one of the things from it.

The model is dv9700.

I am looking at an SSD: OCZ Vertex Plus OCZSSD2-1VTXPL240G 2.5" 240GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

None of the devices are compatible with the lap top. You could make an external hard drive out of the 250Gig 3.5" Drive though for backup.

Please see here: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en/ho/WF06a/12139188-78299199-78299212-78299212-78299212-81140604.html

So you're saying that nothing on the market is compatable with this laptop anymore?

The only thing that is compatible are SATA 2.5" Lap Top Drives and System Specific DDR2 RAM for your lap top and faster Optical drives.

Everything else is integrated.

Don't forget to update the firmware on that SSD. The exact model number for future reference is on the bottom such as dv9711US or dv9715US
Dv9700 is a family that can have Intel or AMD based CPUs as one basic difference.
