HP Recommended
pavillion
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi i have an hp pavillion gaming laptop it is the one above base (ryzen 5 3500, Nvidia GeForce 1050, 8gb ram) My problem is that I am out of storage as it is only 256gb and was wondering if it is possible to *INTERNALLY* upgrade this as it would make this computer much better and wanted SSD as that is what comes in it. Basically i want to know 1 is this possible 2 is it easy 3 will i lose all of the data i had or is there a way to back it up? Anyways thank you for your responses.

The specs of your machine is

Manual for the series

 

          http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06446633.pdf

 

Your machine supports dual storage, you can add 2.5" HDD/SSD to your machine but you need Hard drive connector/cable part # L72698-001 as mentioned on page  33 of the manual. Part is N/A from HP. I can't find from other stores. Please try
