If you're referring to the laptop you mentioned in another thread which you say is from 2011, a description of it would be helpful.

I use and recommend either samsung or WD black drives. Both are pretty much bulletproof. The software that comes with a WD drive ie the "Tool box" is not that great; the samsung magician software is better. The WD drives are fine; just their software could use some improvement.

There is a dash and additional characters after C670D which comprises the complete model number.
There is also a serial number.
Please provide both of those numbers if possible.

From what I can determine, the C670D series laptops come with a very weak AMD processor.
I'm trying to determine which hardware is in yours and if the cost of a 1 TB capacity solid state drive is feasible.

(the link has Samsung and Western Digital 1 TB solid state drives listed from low-to-high prices)

As you can see from the link that I provided, a 1 TB capacity solid state drive is not cheap.
Unless you really need that much space, you might consider a 240-250 GB or 480-500 GB capacity one.

It looks like you're signed off or gone off-line.
I'm getting ready to shut down anyway for the night, so I'll check back here in the morning.

You seem to have several systems running Windows 10 so when you start a new thread you should always include the TSGSysinfo Utility report.

Please download our free system info utility. When you run it, it will show technical specifications of your computer. Please copy and paste that information in a new reply.

Or if it won't boot at least identify the make and model and whether it's a PC or laptop.

He also has several threads going at the same time, so this whole situation is getting too complicated.

Please reply to post #5 in this thread.
I asked you for the complete model number and the serial number.
You have not provided either number.

Tell us which ones pertain to the same system so we can merge the threads together.

I haven't gotten any response to posts #5 and #12, so I'm removing myself from this thread.
