Введение

This guide will walk you through the steps to replace the hard drive of your Lenovo ThinkPad T480.

The hard drive is a nonvolatile data storage and retrieval device which uses magnetic storage on one or more rotating platters.

If your hard drive fails or becomes corrupted, your computer may start to run extremely slowly, it may overheat, or it may fail to boot. If you experience “blue screen of death” errors or apps that freeze or crash, it might be time to replace your hard drive.

If you need to replace your hard drive, follow the instructions in this guide.

According to the Lenovo Forum, this model has the capacity to upgrade to 1 TB Solid State Drive, PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 M.2.

Be sure to disable the internal battery, turn off the computer, and unplug the laptop from the power adapter prior to starting the repair.
