Also its current GPU is a 8400M or a 8600M (thinking the 8600M). It's been having some video related issues and that's not to surprising as when playing almost any game it hits about 90C, CPU stays very very cool according to Core Temp.

BTW, Is there a back lit keyboard for a DV9000???

Thanks! :)

The one in it looks more like this style, but if a 9800M will work I want that one, I WANT THE FASTEST POSSIBLE!!!!

No.

Stop trying to upgrade laptops with parts that are out of spec for the laptop.

Will the 9600M work? It needs a new GPU so I want to get it something faster as it's used for playing games. Thank you!

Okay, look.

Laptops are a completely different animal when it comes to DIY stuff than desktops. Most laptops are built to a pre-determined specification and thus, every aspect about the laptop is limited, including:
  • Mechanical: Not just if the part will fit, but if the cooling system is designed to accommodate the TDP
  • Electrical: If the part meets the voltage requirements, the pin layout, and if the power supply can handle the part.
  • Software: If the system firmware is happy with the part.
These limits restrict you to what you can and cannot put in the laptop. The only way you can be sure a part will work with the laptop is to figure out its range of configurations. If the laptop did not ship with a particular hardware configuration, then 9 times out of 10, it won't work.

Now about your laptop and about that GPU... First and foremost, do you even know what BGA is? Also considering that the dv9000's GPU is the GeForce Go 7600, you're more than likely looking at a different pinout and power requirements. That and the 9800M GT produces a lot more heat.

So do us a favor, stop spamming your own topics and go actually learn what the fuck you're doing.
