I have a Pavillion [WC778AA-UUW, Software Build #: A1PNv6PrA2].
After upgarding to Windows 10 it exhibit temporary slow performance.
I can see the disc and memory at times are accessed intensively and this slow down my computer, sometimes it is running on its own for minutes. It seems to be the system that re-indexes the disc repeatedly or similar OS-internal operations.
Now I think about supplementing my PC with an SSD.
Do you have any advice on which product I should choose, I need about 400 GB.
Have you any description of how I can best carry out the upgrade (20 years ago I was an experienced computer technician).

The following link shows specs of your machine:
It is an old machine by today standard. It has at least 1 spare HDD bay
13.33 cm (5.25 inch)
8.89 cm (3.5 inch)
Pocket Media Drive
* Bays may be occupied by existing hardware.
therefore you can add any standard 2.5" SSD (very hard to find 3.5" SSD) which is normal laptop drive. My suggestion
- Buy new SSD and mounting kit. 1TB SSD's are very cheap now but if you wish you can buy smaller (capacity) such as 512GB.
- Clone existing HDD to new SSD, this should save your time a lot,
- Swap new SSD to the place of old HDD,
- Format old HDD and install it as a second HDD.
For 1: please try Crucial, Samsung, SanDisk .... SSD and you need mounting kit such as
For 2: Normally you can use free software to clone. I did few tests with the following free product. 100% worked:
