    Welcome to the laptop forums site

    Taking a look at Youtube it looks like its a standard SATA 2.5” laptop hard drive.

    So it should fit

    To replace the hard drive its a simple case of opening the “middle” section flap on the back of your laptop, remove the battery first.

    Here's a link to some software that will transfer your data over to your new hard drive.

    Use the migrate option.

    MINITOOL PARTITION WIZARD

    You will also require an usb to sata cable like these:

    It's under the wizard MENU and there's a blue migrate icon just under the dynamic disc option

    It says migrate os to ssd/hd.

    The hd part is for hard drives
