How to install a solid state drive in a laptop? Operation method for adding an SSD to a computer
How to install a solid state drive in a laptop? Now, an SSD hard drive is already a standard product for computers, and many laptop users are planning to install an SSD hard drive for their computers, so how do you do it? Let me share with you how to add an SSD to your laptop.Method 1, direct installation
The premise of this method is that laptop has an optional reserved interface when you buy it, then you can purchase corresponding SSD according to reserved interface model and install it directly. Typically, additional book interfaces include M.2 (also known as NGFF), MSATA, SATA, and other models.
It should be noted that: M.2 (NGFF) is divided into 2242, 2260 and 2280. The number 22 in front indicates width of 22mm and number behind 22mm indicates length. In addition, M.2 (NGFF) is also divided into SATA and PCIE protocols. MSATA is divided into half and full height. If you don't know much about your computer, you can contact professionals or support~Method 2, install it on a CD
If your laptop does not have an optional reserved SSD interface, you can only use remaining laptop space. Many computers now have a reserved CD drive, or if you don't use a CD at all, you can use CD drive for installation. Since SATA speed of optical drive may be lower than original mechanical hard drive, in order to better reproduce performance of SSD, SSD is usually installed in main hard drive, and HDD (mechanical hard drive) removed from main hard drive is installed in optical drive
Note. If your laptop has an optical drive, you need to remove optical drive and buy a hard drive tray for optical drive. When buying an optical drive bay, you need to pay attention to correct choice of interface and size.Method 3, replace old hard drive
Laptops without additional ports and don't want to move an optical drive? Or maybe your computer does not have an optical drive at all? Then simply remove original hard drive (mechanical hard drive) and replace it with an SSD.
Note. Purchase a new SSD according to interface and thickness of original mechanical hard drive.
