Identification and Background ¶
The laptops in the HP Pavilion dv9000 series are all 17 inch laptops. This can be identified by looking to the right of the webcam under the computer screen lid. You also can verify this through right-clicking on "My Computer" and then selecting "Properties."
By looking at the white sticker at the bottom of the computer next to the DVD drive, you might notice that the product series of the computer is not exactly "dv9000." This is because there are many variations of this laptop, but the hardware construction is all the same.
