Hi friends, I recently purchased this aio pc. I searched information to change  hard drive for an SSD, but can not find how to do it. I can not open it.

You know any manual or video on how to make it open?
thank you very much

Hi there obdii,
First of all I would like to state the obvious - that it's probably best to contact the manufacturer support and ask them about this. Further more, if the device is in warranty, it's highly likely that you will void it if change any components, or even if you open it. Having that in mind, as far as I can tell - you have a 500 GB HDD and, in theory, you should be able to replace it with a SSD. The other thing you’ll want to check before you go out and buy a replacement SSD is your drive’s form factor; you need to make sure the drive will fit in the laptop. Most laptops have 2.5-inch drives. Than you may want to either copy your files to another device and later transfer back, or make a clone of your current drive.
I can describe the steps further, but there are many tutorials on the web, with great detail and pictures. First make sure you choose and purchase the SSD, and feel free to ask any questions. Citizen WD

I believe that model actually has two mini PCI-e slots.  One is used for the Wifi card, and the other is free.  So you should be able to actually add an SSD to that without even removing the original hard drive.

Thank you all for responding.
I already have a previous ssd .
Now I finally have managed to remove the back cover and place . The cover came was very tight and difficult to remove.
Thanks again. A greeting
