Does HP Pavilion Notebook - 17-f201nv support M.2 NVMe?

HP Pavilion Notebook - 17-f201nv
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I had a 240 GB SSD on my laptop, but lately it has been too slow for me to work. So I decided to buy a 500 GB NVMe SSD by WD Blue, but before I will buy it ( because I don't know a lot about this specific model ) I decided to ask you guys if it is compatible with NVMe SSDs.

Hi:

 

It is a good thing that you did because your notebook does not support NVMe drives.

 

If it has an M.2 slot, it would only support a SATA M.2 drive.

 

See the service manual at the link below.  Chapter 1 lists the supported M.2 drives.

No its too old for that. If you have a 2.5 inch SATA SSD that is "too slow" you have something else going on. 

 

The M.2 slot (SATA ONLY) is on the back of the motherboard so darn near brain surgery to get to and would be no faster than what you have.

You're very welcome.

 

It would support a SATA 3 M.2 drive, and to the best of my knowledge, it would not work any better than the 2.5" SSD you have in there now unless you didn't buy one with the best read/write speeds available.
