Default SDD and HDD in a laptop?

Hello everyone.

I've recently noticed lags on my laptop(HP Pavilion G7 2138so).
I asked around my friends on how to best fix it and all they told me was "SSD drive, dude." So, I looked it up and found 6(I recall) drives which fit in my current laptop.
(Komplett.se)

I asked on the World of Warcraft forums about which one of them, and I'm not really the best in computer-tech, so I thought I'd ask you guys.

How do I know if I can fit both a HDD drive and a SSD drive into my laptop?

Thank you for looking, signing out, Bubble.

What kind of "lags" are you talking about? Game lag? Freezing/hanging? Internet latency?

I've been noticing(especially in WoW) FPS drops which I've never experienced before. Occasionally I'm dropping down to 2-4 frames/second and as said, never happened before.

That's not a drive issue I think.

If you can add a 2nd screen, you can open up the resource monitor and keep a eye on the disk usage. If it spikes as you lag then you're right.

Have you updated your drivers for your video card lately?

Being a laptop have you cleaned it out at all?
