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.

This guide was very useful.

I have only one to-add: take care of the little SSD screw (at step 4), don’t let it fall to the motherboard. For me it gave a bit of spark and smell.

Very useful guide indeed. To avoid issues issues similar to the above mentioned, it would be better to disconnect battery first.

Another question: can SSD drives with heat sink like WD SN750 Black be installed in this laptop?

Thanks
