Solved!

Secure SSD

HP Recommended
Pavilion P560
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi

I have just purchased an SSD and located the socket for it. You have to remove the graphics board to access it easily.

However, there are 2 posts to secure the card at different spacings, I assume for different sized cards. The problem is, I do not have a bolt with the ludicrously small thread that is required. The card then sits at an angle , pushed into that position by the contacts in the socket So I suspect that if not secured, contact would be suspect.

The posts are labelled HS3 on the motherboard but I have no idea what size thread would fit that.

Anyone know?
