The name of my laptop is, Hp pavilion gaming laptop 15-dk1xxx

 

Currently an M.2 SSD has either one of three key types: B, M or B+M. This is what I am  referring to.

Hi:

 

HP only has the service manual for the older model series on your notebook's support page.

 

HP Pavilion Gaming 15-dk1000 Laptop PC series Manuals | HP® Customer Support

 

If you look at chapter 1 of the maintenance and service guide, the older models have M.2 slots that support NVMe drives.

 

Yours would be the same...NVMe.

 

NVMe SSD's have one notch.  SATA SSD's have two.

I am currently looking into the manual as we speak and thank you. But how do I find the M.2 key type is it B, M or B+M, this is all so very new to me and a learning experience. The goal is it put a SSD in the M.2 slot.

You're very welcome.

 

The M.2 slot your PC has is a M-Key, which enables using up to 4 PCIe lanes.

 

You want to install a NVMe SSD as I had replied earlier.  Something like this...

 

Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics (MZ-V8V500B/AM) 980 SSD 500GB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid St...

 

I do not see by looking in the manual that your PC supports both SATA and NVMe SSD's, so the slot is not a B+M key or a B-Key.

 

A “B-Key” enables SATA or PCIe NVMe™ SSDs using up to 2 PCIe lanes.
