Second SSD for TM P459-M

mardummardum Posts: 7Member

Tinkerer

Hi all,

I've got a P459 laptop from work.
I've opened it up and I noticed it's got one M2 ssd and an empty slot for a 2.5" one, but no connector.
Is there a connector I can buy to get a second ssd in? (I did this on a 9360 XPS)

Thanks

    Hi,
    No, that cable is not suitable for your model, I couldn't find the Part number for the cable, please contact Acer Service centre and they will be able to help, the actual cable looks like in the snip attached.

    Hi,
    This cable also not suitable, this is a LVDS cable and you need a eDP 30 pin cable, I can not find the part number for this as well but you may be able to get it from the label on the current cable(snip), in any case, please contact Acer Support centre for the availability of the cable.

    @mardum! Is your model P459-M or P459-g2-M? If it's the P459-M, these are the cables:

    On edp cable, you should check the code on your notebook!

    When you get the caddy for the 2.5" SSD the connector should come along with it.

    Hi Jack,

    Do you have a link or a part number?

    Thanks

    Mardum, I have same issue; bought a Crucial MX500GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) SSD (part #CT500MX500SSD1) which is guaranteed to be compatible. Chat support can't (or won't) help as there is--get ready--no instruction document for upgrading. What have you found out?

    egydiocoelho: that's a bad URL. I already contacted Chat support and they cannot help and will not send me a technical service manual, gave me a case number and have to call Level 2 support which seems ridiculous for something as common as upgrading storage disk.
  • egydiocoelhoegydiocoelho Posts: 14,201ACE Trailblazer
    Have you called technical support? Have you already registered your notebook on the website? I'm not sure, but I think this kit is only available for some models!

    Thanks @brummyfan2.
    I still have the original cable in the laptop.
    Just didn't find the time to take it out and look for a part number.

    Any info is welcome.

    egydiocoelho: thanks for the great detective work. I can get the HDD/SSD cable from Acer but will have to pay for it. Problem is that Acer no longer has the HDD/SSD assembly kit; will not send me the tech service manual so I can see which socket and where the interface is on the system board. Would you know where to find which bracket/module is compatible with the P-459M? Thanks.
