Which model HP laptop? ( I can read "HP" on the battery.)

SATA drives have two connectors: one connector for power and one connector for data.

Should be standard SATA cables - hopefully nothing proprietary.

FYI:

Appears to be standard SATA plugs but uses a single ribbon cable instead of two flat wires.

Identify the laptop model and google "HP laptop SATA cable" and add the model number. You should be able to find the applicable connection cable.

Look for the laptop's repair/maintenance manual. You may find a specific part number.
