Pavilion Dv6
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,


I have HP Pavilion dv6-2140ee and would like to change my standard Hard Drive SATA - 7200 rpm(320Gb) with an SSD drive.


My questions are:

 

-Does my notebook support SSD drives?

-What is the recommendation for the type and size SSD hard drive?


Thanks in advance for your support

@MLasheenn

 

Welcome to HP Support Forum, my answers:

 

  1. Yes, it is an old machine but does support normal 2.5" SSD. It also supports Supports all Serial ATA (SATA) 9.5-mm, 6.35-cm (2.50-inch) hard drives therefore the thickness of current SSD's would fit.
  2. My suggestion: try the following vendor

The instructions are in the Maintenance and Service Guide (click). As always, you proceed at your own risk when opening your system.
