@Armaghan786 , welcome to the Community.

 

Here are the Product Specifications for the computer: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-gaming-desktop-pc-tg01-0000a/37874510/document/c069...

 

If you look at the section titled "Internal Storage" it states that you have a "512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD" already installed.  You can check the motherboard to make certain.  Here is the System Board viewer showing where it is located:

It is Item #22.

You will have to remove the graphics card to allow you to install the M.2.  This is not uncommon with this placement of it.  Personally, I would like to see the socket in a different place.  It must not be possible.
