How to add HDD on this model? (IdeaPad S340-15API)

2019-11-19, 5:59 AM

Hello, I was wondering why when I installed my 160 GB HDD my keyboard was a little high on that side. Am I using the wrong HDD? Also when I put the drive in I can't put it straight in I have to lift it a little in the sky then it'll go in. First time adding hard drive in any laptop. Thanks for the replies in advance. 

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome,

 

There's no way to know if it's the wrong drive without knowing what drive it is.  What is the drive's model number?

 

Per the base spec your laptop can take a 7mm thick drive.

Okay thanks that pdf file is exactly what I needed. The 160 GB hard drive is from an old laptop. Western Digital brand. If you want I could attach a picture and also could you tell me how to install it maybe I did something wrong.

If it's an older drive it may be 9.5mm thick.  The HMM should make removal/installation clear.

That's probably it. Thank you. Instead of a hard drive could I put a SSD there?
