Introduzione

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.

    • Unscrew the bottom three screws using the same screwdriver.

    • The bottom Phillips #1 screws don't remove from the back plate, but do need to be unscrewed.

    On my HP EliteBook 840 G5, the “two side screws” (black) are found inside the two holes seen next to the left top screw, and between the center and right top screw.

    Mine had the same, and these black screws also need to be released in order to remove the bottom panel.

    Correct. Some other models have 2 black screws at the back, near the corners.

    The models with the 2 black screws, are missing the 2 silver screws at the left side and the right side in the middle.

    Note: You need to release the 2 black screws as well, if your type of model has them.

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.
