I want to know that because i am going to buy a new HDD soon. And if my laptop has an extra HDD slot, i have to know what is the type of slot? Thanks.
Go to Solution.
Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.
Maintenance and Service Guide HP Pavilion Gaming 15 Laptop PC
Chapter 1 has the supported drive types.
According to the information in chapter 1, your notebook has a M.2 slot that supports both SATA and NVMe SSD's.
If you notice in chapter 3, there is an additional part called a thermal plate that is used with a M.2 SSD, so if you don't get this extra part, your SSD may run hot.
Thermal plate for solid-state drive L84067-001.
Unfortunately, I would have no idea where you could get that part, or if it is even available for sale.
Oh, i get it. Thanks for your reply. So do you have an idea what should i do? I mean, if i buy a new HDD, where can i connect it? I bought this PC with a default SSD but i need more storage space.
You're very welcome.
Since your notebook came with a 256 GB M.2 SSD, it must also have the thermal plate included.
What I would recommend is to buy a larger capacity SSD...say 1 TB, and have more space.
You can use the HP cloud recovery tool to reinstall Windows 10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your notebook.
Here is an info link for how to use that utility...

You may want to open up your notebook and see if the parts are there to install a 2.5" drive.
On some models there are, and on some there is just a blank space and you have to buy the parts to add a 2.5" drive.
On your model, the hard drive brackets cannot be purchased.

Thank you for your interest.
Glad to have been of assistance.
