Adding ssd to pavilion 500-326na

HP Recommended
pavilion 500-326na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

PC is 5 years old, works fine but slow

Can I add Crucial ssd (motherboard is orchid-3 MS7906)

Can I then make it primary drive

Or must I just replace the HHD

Please excuse ignorance thanks

Hi

 

13.33 cm (5.25 inch) ODD
1
8.89 cm (3.5 inch) HDD
1

 

But

but there are obviously several sata ports

6 x SATA 6 Gb/s

Open the computer, and check if there is the possibility of an additional sata power cable.
And if you have a small place to place it ..
Hopefully you could actually add a sata SSD.
You just have to find a trick to fix it somewhere

Thanks Promethee. Guess I'll just have to open it up and make sure of everything before spending any money on it. Cheers
