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:
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
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
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
