I want help regarding which M.2 SSD is suitable with HP AM103TX Model.

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, currently I'm planning to change from HDD OS Storage to M.2 SSD. So, I was wondering if anyone would know which type of M.2 SSD is compatible with the HP Laptop AM103TX model. I did do some research but I'm still unclear. 


My initial plan was to buy the Crucial P2 NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD for my laptop. But I found out that it is not compatible with my laptop through their website compatibility checking system which is a save as if I had not known I might already buy it. 


Here are some of the other types of M.2 SSD that I'm eyeing. But I need your help, how do I know if any of this will work and compatible with my laptop model? Some of this does not really have a website compatibility checker like the Crucial brand. 


Other M.2 SSD Brand 

1. Silicon Power NVMe PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 SSD

2. WD Blue PC 3D NAND SATA SSD M.2 2280

3. SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series M.2 SATA 

4. Kingston NVMe SSD A2000 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD 3D NAND


Hope you guys can understand, and help out! Thank you!

Does your notebook have a M.2 slot?


If your notebook did not come with a M.2 SSD from the factory, there is a very good chance that there is no M.2 slot.


If you have already taken the notebook apart and see the M.2 slot, then the slot only supports SATA M.2 SSD's, not NVMe.


Here is a video of someone taking apart a HP 240 G5 notebook (which is the same model as yours, but the business version, and I do not see a M.2 slot.

If your notebook does not have a M.2 slot, then you can replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a better performing 2.5" SSD.
