I looked at links you sent me, they have an HP SSD drive!! Are they easy to install? What about my operating system?

You should first do a backup of your HDD, then remove it and install the SSD, then do a restore to the SSD. Then make sure TRIM is turned on, and you're good to go. You can then either use the HDD as a secondary drive, or store it as a full backup of your computer.

Make sure that you create the emergency DVD when you do the backup, so that you'll be able to boot the computer and do the restore when the SSD is installed. The emergency DVD is made inside of your backup program. When you boot with it, you are simply booting into a standalone version of the backup program, allowing you to then do a restore.

I'm going to try to do the install. I'm about to order an SSD from the links you sent. When it gets here, can you walk me through the process?

Note: You don't need a SSD the size of the HDD. Windows and Programs won't require more than 85G. The SSD size is more related to your data.
Open Explorer, right click on the C: drive - Properties to see what is the space been used. This would be the guide line for your purchase (128, 256, 512G or 1T).

Does yours have a ODD (CD/DVD) drive?
There is an upgrade bay (pag 73) that you can use to replace the ODD with a second HDD or SSD.
As ODD is obsolete (if needed you can use a USB CD/DVD) to have a small SSD (128G) and a HDD is the best of the two.
You'll have the speed of a SSD and the space of a HDD for a very low price.
That is what I have on Desktop.
