How to Install a 2.5″ SATA SSD in a Laptop – Kingston Technology

Before we get started, please unplug the power
and remove the battery from your notebook. Please refer to your notebook manufacturer’s
user manual on how to properly remove the battery. Some notebooks require you to take off the
case cover before removing the battery. Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds
to drain any residual power from the notebook. Remove the case cover and locate the
storage device on the motherboard. Carefully, remove the
screws securing the drive. Gently remove the drive out and disconnect
the SATA connector from the notebook. If your notebook uses a bracket or screws
to hold in the drive remove those as well. The hard drive will easily
separate from the bracket. Place the SSD into the bracket by lining up the
connectors and the screw holes and tighten the screws. Attach the SATA connector to
the SSD and slide it back into the bay. If the SSD uses a bracket, make sure to tighten
the screws to secure the SSD. Place the case cover back onto the notebook. Re-connect the battery, connect the power
and boot up your system. If you need help cloning your drive, please
