@filozof,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

Thank you for posting your query on this forum, it's a great place to find answers.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to upgrade the hard drive on the computer.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I checked the specifications of your computer and the motherboard and see that your computer doesn’t support SSD.

 

Please refer to the below links for more information.

 

Product specifications: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-23-q000-all-in-one-desktop-pc-series-touch/7902091/...

ssd drive question

Greetings,

Welcome back to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

Your PC has a 2.5 inch SATA HDD now.

 

I see no reason why you can't install a 2.5 inch SATA SSD.

 

The only problem would be the size of the SSD you install. HP recovery media will look for a 1 TB storage device.

 

The HP recovery media may not work if you install anything less than a 1 TB storage device.

 

You will have to use other recovery methods if you need to restore the operating system.

 

Regards

Hi Filozof,

 

You're very welcome.

 

You can do a Samsung, Crucial, Adata, WD, or others.

 

They all are the same dimensions and use the same SATA data and power connections.

 

The drive capacity size of less than 1 TB will only mess up HP recovery media. Your motherboard is compatible with SATA SSDs.

Hi Filozof,

 

I may jumped the gun on the HDD size in your PC.

 

It is a 3.5 inch drive; thanks wb2001.

 

You should be able to use a 3.5 inch to 2.5 inch HDD adapter to fit a 2.5 inch drive.

 

I am not sure as I have not worked on the inside of your specific product.

 

You would have to take a look to see what you have in there.

 

The data and power connections are compatible and the SATA SSD will be recognized by the system.

 

Regards

Hi Filozof,

 

Good to see the SSD worked for you.

 

Did your AIO have a 2.5 inch HDD or did you have to use a 3.5 inch to 2.5 inch HDD adapter?

 

This would be good to know.

 

Regards
