Default NEWBIE ARRIVAL - Help requested

Hello, all!

I am a newbie here, and I have signed up, because I am trying to find out what affordable SSD drives will work in my HP Elitebook 2740p. Just bought one, and it did not work, and there are no forums I have found that are relevant to this.

Does anyone have any information on this?

The hard drive does not even show up. Trying to find something cheap that works.

A 128GB SSD will run about $100+ right now. This one should be fine as your lappy has standard SATA connections.

That drive should work just fine, the thing probably isnt formated yet.

If you have a desktop, use the desktop cables and plg it in, and see if your disk management can find it.

The problem with that is the power. I can fit a sata data connector to it, but it's a 1.8" drive, so I cannot connect regular power to it.
