Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Yes, it will work, and yes, it will improve your computer's performance since the Intel 730 series SSDSC2BP480G4 SSD is a solid state drive (SSD), which runs a lot faster than the old hard disk drive (HDD) technology.

Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you,

how do i put win 10 back on it

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 5 months ago.

The instructions will come with the SSD drive. Basically, you will use the Intel Data Migration Software to transfer / copy everything from the old drive to the new drive. Thank you.
