@SteER_,

 

Unfortunately, your model does not support a 2.5" hard drive/SATA SSD. Your service manual (page 2) indicates that your model supports only M.2 NVMe SSDs. Page 49 of the manual indicates all of the cable connecters on the system board, but no connecter that is designated for a 2.5" SATA dive.

Maintenance and Service Guide (hp.com)

 

Your model does not support DDR5 RAMs. DDR5 runs on different voltage, and it just does not physically fit into the DDR4 socket. Basically, your laptop already has the highest speed of RAM it can support.

Can u know how many m.2 slots are free. i may install another nvme ssd 

HP Recommended

Page 2 of the manual lists supported NVMe SSDs.  The page shows two types of M.2 form factors: M.2 2280 and 2230. Page 36 has the same description. Not sure if this means that your model has two M.2 slots or that there's one slot but it has two standoffs for 2280 and 2230 NVMe. The manual just isn't clear.

 

You may have to remove the bottom cover to find out. If you see an M.2 NVMe 2280 (see p.36 for its location), remove it to see if a 2230 standoff is there. If not look for another slot. 

 

The manual is actually for 15-fd0xxx. Yours is a 15-fd1xxx and you may not have another M.2 slot.
