Take the hard drive out. Does it have an adapter on the end ? Will the adapter go an the ssd ?

These are things you have to check out.

If your hard drive is sata and no type of adapter, you should have no problems.

Normally any 2.5" SSD fits into a laptop. But as AddRam says, check whether you have a standard layout and whether it is Sata - not IDE.

Here are a couple of good ones that may fit the bill:
