Instructions on replacing SSD drive and upgrading RAM

HP Recommended
Envy 750-055xt
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My machine has a 500 GB SSD for the OS and programs and a 1 TB standard hard drive for data (E drive), and 16 GB ram.  It's been a workhorse, but it's time to upgrade.  For my needs I don't need a faster processor.   Where can I find instructions on:

1.  How to replace the SSD drive with a new one? (I've located a compatible 1 TB Samsung SSD)

2. How to to a clean reinstall of Windows 10 Pro OR how to restore from an image

3. How to replace the RAM.  There are currently 2 slots filled with 2 8 GB sticks.  I'm replacing them with 2 compatible 16 GB sticks.


There are lots of youtube videos out there, but I wanted some info straight from the HP community.  Thank you.

Nothing complicated but I don't have the manual here

Your computer is of the configurable type, so you already have information here:
