HP Recommended
Slimline Desktop 290-a0046
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP slimline desktop 290-a0046 has a Cosmo A9 motherboard with a M2 SSD slot. I want to purchase a compatible 1TB M2 SSD drive for it. Can someone supply me with a compatible Seagate, or Samsung, or Crucial, or Kingston part number, please? Thanks in advance.

@Fortran77 , welcome to the Community.

 

Unfortunately, HP has not told us which "key" the M.2 socket has; either key M (NVMe) or key B+M (SATA): https://www.atpinc.com/blog/what-is-m.2-M-B-BM-key-socket-3

 

You can open the case to look careful at it to see which of the keys that it matches in the link above.

 

Here is one of each type of M.2:

 

key M: https://www.newegg.com/samsung-970-pro-1tb/p/N82E16820147694

 

key B+M: https://www.newegg.com/samsung-860-evo-series-1tb/p/N82E16820147678

 

I believe that it is the key M, but want to make certain.  I don't want to have you pay to return one that doesn't fit.

Thanks Old_geekster. Your answer is the best I have had from anyone including the HP support and parts people. I have been trying to avoid opening the box and examining the M2 slot, but I agree that's the best solution for now. I watched the HP-produced videos on YouTube.com are ambiguous on this point.

You are welcome, @Fortran77!

 

It won't hurt a thing by opening the case.  Just touch some bare metal inside of the case before touching any of the components.  This will eliminate any Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).

Good luck!
