My friends hp pavillion dv9930 just died, consequence of the whole hp naughty doings with their pavillion series.

He wants me to get a new mobo instead of buying a new computer.

I'm confused regarding the part because I find stuff like this on ebay and other websites:

"Replacement motherboard for dv9000 series, dv9500, dv9(you name it)."

Will then that motherboard work with ANY dv9000's? It confuses me that first they say any 9000 series model and then they list a few specifics. Don't want to order the wrong one and then have to deal with the whole "as is, no return, you should have checked first" etc. stuff.

Thank you!

No, some of them use different processors and thus architecture. If you think you have found what you need, double-check compatibility by comparing downloadable service manuals, or ask HP which one you need

Actually, found the part number for the mobo right under the RAM. The mobo is now on its way.
Thank you!
