Solved!

Upgrade HDD/SDD and RAM - what are my options HP Envy X360 15-bp106na ?

HP Recommended
HP Envy X360 (15-bp106na)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good day,

 

I have an HP Envy x360 specced as follows:  i7 8550U, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD (primary) and 1TB HDD (secondary).

I ran out of disk space on the C drive (128GB SSD) and had to move my user profiles and photos to the D drive (1TB HDD).  Since doing so the laptop has become unbearably slow.  Explorer takes ages to simply list folder structures on the drive (OS is Win10 and fully patched).  I use the laptop to edit photographs in Lightroom & Photoshop and the slow response times are starting to drive me crazy so I’m looking for upgrade options.

 

My questions are as follows:

  1. RAM:
    • What is the maximum RAM (GB) I can upgrade to which is supported by the firmware - 16Gb / 32Gb / 64Gb
    • How many DIMM slots are onboard?  If there are 2 slots I will purchase another 8Gb bringing me up to 16GB
  2. DRIVES:
    • Is the primary drive replaceable or is it soldered to the board?  If it is replaceable what is the largest size I can upgrade to – will it support 1TB?
    • As the 1TB is an HDD, I’m assuming it’s a 2.5” SATA – so this is easily replaced I’d imagine with a 1TB 2.5” SSD
  3. Does anyone have a service manual for this model?  That would be really helpful.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing your views / comments

Hi:

 

Here are the links to the Crucial memory report, the service manual and the product specs for your notebook.

 

https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/hP-Compaq/envy-x360-15-bp106na

 

Your notebook has one memory slot, and the max memory the slot can take is 16 GB.

 

The service manual indicates the same as far as the memory is concerned.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05527167

 

The service manual (chapter 1 page 2) indicates that the M.2 slot can support both SATA and NVMe SSD's.

 

The product specs for your notebook do not even mention the presence of a M.2 SSD and the Crucial report does not offer any compatible M.2 NVMe drives on their report, but that is no big deal.

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05708355

 

Adding this all up...

 

You can install 1 x 16 GB of memory, but to do that according to both the manual and the Crucial report, you will have to remove the 8 GB memory module and replace it with a 16 GB memory module.

 

You can replace the 128 GB M.2 drive with a 1 TB SATA or NVMe drive, and if your current M.2 drive is SATA, replace it with the considerably faster NVMe type.

 

Google the M.2 drive model number, you see under the disk drives section of the device manager, and you can probably find out if it is SATA or NVMe that way if you don't know already.

 

Chapter 5 of the manual has the procedures to remove and replace the memory and the M.2 drive.
