    Just done! Worked like a charm!
    Instead of minutes, starting up takes only seconds!
    By upgrading memory to 8GB and SSD, this laptop has never been this fast not even when brand new.
    Toshiba Satellite C670 from 2011.
    Great for the environment and my pocket 🙂

    Thanks a lot!

    My old hard drive died the other day and am getting an SSD. Hopefully I can open my laptop without hurting it. My hard drive got so bad I couldn’t even reset my laptop. Couldn’t run any repairs or anything.
    I’m hoping a new drive will fix these issues.

    Can I use a SSD to upgrade my laptop from 4GB to 8GB RAM?

  8. Elvis Putns on March 25, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    What a coincidence you have a slow Asus and i have the same thing… with i7 and all the belss and whistles, but boots up just in 10 min……..(Actually pretty cclose to that) I hate Asus laptops..
    Edit:I started cleaning old updates and stuff before i switched to this video and it has cleaned around 10%. I think even paint dries quicker…

    Seems easy until you don’t have any screwdrivers around and don’t know what sizes to buy lol

  13. SilverPot Roblox on March 25, 2021 at 11:09 pm

  18. CountryHuman on March 25, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    thats my grandmas laptop😆😆😅 but low end my grangma specs:

    120gb hdd

    intel pentium (forgot the numbers)

    1136×789 screen

    4000 MaH battery (which shuts down the computer randomly)

  19. Lost_Places _Global on March 25, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    What do you recommend for my Acer a315? I have a empty SATA(big) SSD slot free and I also can replace the normal M.2 SSD inside of it(that Acer soldered inside with windows 10).

    So should I install a Samsung evo 970 plus M.2

    Or a Samsung Evo 870 for the empty slot and don’t change the M.2 ssd by Acer replaced.

  20. jan carlo buaron on March 25, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Does it also need the boot come from the new ssd for it to work? TIA

  21. Bill Dillon on March 25, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    You made no mention of the BIOS. Do any changes have to be made to it? Thanks for taking the time to make this video. I found it very helpful.

  22. Krlmk on March 25, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I’m assuming I want a cable not a sata usb adapter? To order this I need to look it up in another language it’s a bit confusing. I’d like to know if there’s more similar products I could confuse with the cable so I get the right one

  23. riley percy on March 25, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    How tf do you actually clone tho …

  24. Krlmk on March 25, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Also should I back up my drivers or anything? For clean reinstall of windows I thought I need to reinstall drivers too.

  25. Abdimalik Kadle on March 25, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Ok what about external samsung ssds

  26. akula kranthisai on March 25, 2021 at 11:26 pm

  27. Ravi Peiris on March 25, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Good video, however, wish you took longer (i.e. a tutorial) to go through things step by step.

  28. keenan naidoo on March 25, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I’m using an hp I’ve already upgraded
    I put an ssd and put my hhd in a caddy works best

  29. Joseph Hefner on March 25, 2021 at 11:27 pm

  33. Aakarsh Amrit on March 25, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    my laptop is just 5 months old and it lags so much it has an Core I3 intel 8th Gen processor so which ssd is the best for my laptop pls tell

  34. Peter D Morrison on March 25, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Great tips. I specialise in giving new life to old laptops. First, fit as much RAM as it will take – often more than the manufacturer says. Then search the Intel Ark and buy a top spec New Old Stock CPU from China. Around £25 for what cost £450 new. Then fit a SSD and watch it fly. And you can also replace the DVD drive with a HDD caddy for extra storage using the old hard drive.

  35. skaisteraa on March 25, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    hey! my laptop is 5 + years old. Can I still upgrade 1 tb hdd to 500gb ssd (500 because is cheaper and laptop really slow). Please help!!!

  36. mscoronado on March 25, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    The fact that I have that exact same laptop…

  37. Sqalene on March 25, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I just bought a ASUS gaming laptop, but it has a 1TB HDD. I’m planning to switch the HDD with a 250GB SSD (I don’t need too much space) and I’ve never done anything to the computer, can i just put the SSD into the computer by opening the case without a cable like in this video?

    If someone could reply to me ASAP then that would be great. I bought this for my son for his birthday and I want to make it as good as I can.

  38. GAURAV GAUTAM INDWAR on March 25, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Hey! What chair are you using?

  40. shaylarz on March 25, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Looks like my old ASUS that I absolutely loved til the display went wonky. :/

  41. G S on March 25, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Good stuff!

  42. Bird on March 25, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Holy crap i have this same laptop with an i5. It was sooooooooooooo badly laggy. Yesterday i replaced it with a ssd and man it feels like a whole new fast laptop

  43. goldenkingstoys on March 25, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I’ve upgraded an old dell 3520 with a crucial ssd and 8gb ram. Found out I have a bad motherboard. Even with buying a new motherboard, I’ve managed to bring the laptop back to life under 200 usd. I also invested in a cloning device so transfer data from one hard drive to an ssd. Those are cheap on amazon/ebay. I’ve purchased most my parts from amazon.

  44. Dylan M A Khalil on March 25, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I Didn’t Upgrade My asus UltraPortable Laptop with SSD Because already using SSD of Storage. But My SSD is Ultrafast

  45. The Tech Chap on March 25, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Hey Chaps! What Laptop are you using right now? (and will you upgrade soon) 🤔

  46. Lost_Places _Global on March 25, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    I don’t know how to put my windows from my old M.2 SSD to a new M.2 SSD..

    I’m afraid I’ll lose my windows 10

  47. Joeri Movies on March 25, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    How can i upgrade my ssd when the old harddrive doesnt work?

  48. Maan K on March 25, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Do they fit on HP laptops?

  49. BeActive Behappy on March 25, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    How about providing some links for the cables and screws and the specification of SSD…????

  50. Richard Chambers Jr. on March 25, 2021 at 11:50 pm
