Default HP 2740p Solid State - Need Advice

I have an HP 2740p, but the Samsung SSD (1.8") that I bought did not work. I am looking for an affordable SSD that I can install in there (120 or 128Gb).

There are few forums on this (and none are really helpful). Does anyone have some insight where I can find a drive that is affordable (and doesn't cost the $800 HP wants to charge for one directly from them)?


Thanks, everyone!

How wasn't your previous SSD recognized? Was it not recognized in BIOS or within WIndows?

Both. Nothing showed up in BIOS. I changed from AHCI to IDE and still nada.
