I checked the HP site for the chipset and sata information for your notebook. Seems like they deliberately avoid discussing those components.

I would contact HP support and ask them.

NeHCirE,

 

 

We always recommend for you to confirm compatibility with your system manufacturer.

 

 

It's also worth noting that SATA is backwards compatible. So if you install a newer SATA 3.0 (6Gb/S) drive on an older generation SATA port (1.x 1.5Gb/S, or 2.x 3Gb/S) it will simply function at the slower applicable speed.

 

 

Best regards,

This is crazy: (Here's what each one said.)

Kingston - I have SATA III

Crucial - I have SATA II (Crucial System Spec Scanner said 6 Gb/s {SATA III}.)

SanDisk - I have SATA II

HP - M.2 (When I asked which SATA it was, {I,II,III}.)

HWiNFO64 - I have 6 Gb/s {SATA III} (Not sure if this is reliable.)

NeHCirE,

 

 

Unfortunately all we can do here is help you make an educated guess. Looking at all of their responses it's safe to say that your laptop uses SATA 3 or 2. Either way, you should have no issues with a brand new SSD, since SATA is backwards compatible.

 

 

As for the M.2 response, they're either dead wrong, or your laptop also has an expansion slot. M.2 is a form factor, and for storage there are no M.2 hard drives (so that's not where your 1TB HDD is currently installed), only solid state drives. So perhaps this slot is meant for a secondary M.2 SSD.

 

 

2.5" vs M.2 form factors:

 

 

 

 

We hope this helps.

 

 

Best regards,
