I am using a HP ProBook 440 G3 Notebook PC with Windows 10 Pro OS. The PC performance is too slowly running. Disk is almost always 100% consumed. So, I thought of upgrading to an SSD. Can anyone please help me, which SSds are compatible with my device? Or can I fix this issue without buying an SSD?

The 440 G3 has an easy access door on the bottom so you can see what is in there. Here is the Manual:
See p. 34
The 440 G3 comes in quite a few versions so it would help to know the processor you have which could range from a Celeron to an l7 6th gen. Also how much memory?...somewhere between 4 and 16 gigs.
The picture above shows where you can add a 2280 form factor M.2 SSD such as this:
This would make a major improvement in performance over the slow 5400 rpm mechanical drive. But knowing your processor and memory will tell us whether you need other upgrades. The processor is not upgradeable but tells us what makes sense for you to do.
Post back with any other questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

Hello, Thanks for the reply. Currently I am using the Intel i5 processor with 8 GB DDR3 RAM. Some windows 10 processes, like system and service host: sysmain occupies almost 100% disk all the time. That is why I thought of upgrading to an SSD.
