Hi ! i have a : OMEN by HP 17-w213nf


Is it possible to add RAM and also change the HDD for a SSD ? Also, for a few weeks now I have an issue with "100% Disk Usage" , i tried a lot of things i saw online but still have this problem. It's very annoying especially while streaming on Twitch as Streamlabs takes a lot of ressources ...

My pc is only 3 years old and ruuuuuns so slow it drives me crazy.

Its specs



100% disk usage is normally due to no spare RAM available therefore system has to swap/page to disk many times per millisecond and the disk has to spin to dead.


1. RAM: adding more RAM to machine will definitely help. Since both slots are occupied now, you have to replace both

         (a) Upgrade to 16GB using


         (b) Upgrade to 32GB (max) using



2. Storage: You have 2 options

      (a) Replace HDD with 2.5" SSD using

       Or similar from reputable vendors.
                For example

                             (or 2TB)

      (b) Add M.2 NVMe SSD  to your machine using

      Or similar from reputable vendors,  then move contents of old HDD to new M.2 SSD

               For example
