follow the advice with the given site
Open the computer and check, it may be possible to add the SSD in addition to the HDD, you must have at least one free sata connector
If there is a slot available, you can try a SATA SSD
I bought an mx 500 for another model than yours, it is very good
Otherwise you are free to buy another brand, model of course.

 

 

[edit] @LCP47  @movic 

don't use this no, it's probably not HP here

 

@LCP47 

you are not the author of this thread?
I hadn't been paying attention, please don't get stuck like that ..
We will probably separate the messages if this is the case.
So I would need the model of @movic  , to be able to answer you !
