I have been using this Lenovo Ideapad y410p for 6 years which has been awesome throughout these years. Still its battery backup and processor performance is satisfying. The only issue I am having these days is its HDD response. I have a mechanical usual HDD which takes bit long time to wake up from sleep mode, start playing videos or games. It also seems to make spinning noise when I play games. I am seeking for a suggestion from experts.
1. I have an unused 42mm m.2 ssd slot in my laptop. Should I add a 256GB M.2 NGFF SSD there and install OS in ssd?
2. Or should I simply replace my existing HDD with a SATA III SSD like Samsung EVO 840 or somehting else?
Or any suggestion you would liek to add. Thanks in advance.

You may run a diagnostics on the current HDD specially if it fails the SMART integrity test. Then replacement to a SATA SSD can be a good upgrade in case there is a hardware failure.
I hope this helps answer your query.
