Your laptop uses 2.5" 9.5mm SATA Drive. Any 2.5" SATA SSD should work (Samsung 870 Evo, Crucial MX500). As there’s only one storage slot, may be its better to opt for 500GB variant

Also, its a 2012 model. Replacing HDD with an SSD makes things a bit better but i5 2450M + Intel HD3000 is pretty slow compared to current gen tech

Same suggestion, go with 870 Evo or MX500
Lenovo used a shitty 5400rpm drive on ideapad 510, its performance is worse than many external hard drives

Thanks man.
It’s very bad, takes 10 min to boot up and the chrome tab never opens.
Ssd is my last try else will throw this shitty laptop.
Will buy mx500.

Try cleaning the fans and get thermal repasting done to get some additional boost in performance.

The laptop has got a new life after the SSD upgrade.

@ Op – you can also think of a different OS, may be LXLE or Chrome OS flex. Try first from a bootable USB
