Hp laprop 15-bs1xx

Im trying to find out what hard drive is compatible with this laptop. I need to replace it and the only service place around will charge me a rediculous price. Thanks

Hi:

 

I would replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" solid state drive.

 

If you can live with 500 GB of storage space, this drive provides the best performance for the price, in my opinion.

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the hard drive removal and replacement procedure...

Use the HP cloud recovery tool to create a bootable USB recovery drive that will reinstall W10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your notebook.

 

Here is an info link for how to use that utility...
