Solved!

HP Pavilion 23-p030na All in One

HP Recommended
Hewlett-Packard 23-p030na System Serial Number: [Personal Information RAsset Tag: CZC4291Milion 6530
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

According to a HP scan which I ran yesterday my hard drive is in the process of failing. The message told me to contact support.

It would obviously make sense to upgrade to a SSD & I ran an upgrade scanner with Crucial. The result suggests that they have no upgrade that is suitable and this has made me question whether I am able to install an SSD as I would have assumed that they would have a suitable product.

Is anyone able to confirm that an upgrade is possible and perhaps make a suggestion as to make & model.

You should be able to use 2.5" SATA SSD. The main point is how to kit it to your machine PHYSICALLY. Normally we use an adapter such as

And to be sure the SATA cable has suitable length OR you have to adjust the 2.5" drive on the adapter.

Many thanks for that. I had thought that if Crucial could not supply a unit then perhaps it was due to limitations within the build itself. I'm surprised that Crucial don't say that they can supply a SSD but that I would have to purchase my own adapter to make it fit. Anyway I'm pretty sure that I can find a solution to ensure that it fits.
