Introdução

If you are experiencing difficulties with the functionality of the solid-state drive (SSD storage) in your HP Elitebook 840 G5, this guide will provide you with clear steps on replacing your SSD storage. The replacement only requires the listed screwdriver and plastic opening kit under the "Parts" category of this guide. While this replacement is relatively simple, proceed with caution as the entire backing of your computer will be removed leaving the internal electrical components exposed during the SSD replacement.
