Adding SSD 2.5" to laptop - Connector slot is taken to power a fan

Not open for further replies.


Hi, I have a Lenovo L340 (17" model) brand new laptop purchased from around 9 months ago.

I purchased this laptop on the assumption that I would be able to add an additional SSD in the standard 2.5" SSD slot which is present in the laptop.

Unfortunately I have found out that the SSD slot inside the laptop does not come connectors included for adding the SSD.

More importantly the slot which would be used for plugging in the 2.5" SSD is taken and powering the laptop internal fans.

Please see photos at the links below:

May there be a solution for me being able to add the additional SSD whilst powering the fan?

This is the laptop model LENOVO L340 17".

Many thanks, your support and advice is greatly appreciated.
It seems that your Lenovo L340 (17" model) does not have the necessary connectors pre-installed for an additional 2.5" SSD. Moreover, the slot that would typically be used for this SSD is occupied by connectors for the laptop's internal fans.
