Laptop HD help


First timer here on the forum. My friend told me to fix his laptop and when he brought it to me i did a diagnostic test for the Hard Drive and Memory. The memory came out successful but the hard drive did not. I was wondering if I could replace the hard drive with my suggestion link below. My only concern is that will the HD will fit. He said, he would like a little speed boost if possible so I'll be giving him a 7200rpm HD.



Laptop Model #: hp pavillion dv6700

The Dead Hard drive:
Fujitsu Mobile MHZ2320BH-G2 320 GB hard drive Specs (SATA-300) - Internal Hard Drives - CNET Reviews

They should work. Any 2.5" laptop hard drive should work.
