M.2 Not Showing Up In Bios-How to fix?

If you’ve recently installed an M.2 solid-state drive (SSD) into your computer but find that it’s not showing up in the BIOS, you’re not alone. This issue can be frustrating, but there are a few potential solutions to try before giving up.

First, ensure that the M.2 drive is properly seated in its slot on the motherboard. It’s also worth checking if the BIOS is set to recognize the M.2 drive – sometimes it may need to be manually enabled. Additionally, updating your motherboard’s BIOS to the latest version can also help resolve compatibility issues with M.2 drives.

If none of these solutions work, it’s possible that the M.2 drive itself is faulty and may need to be replaced. By following these troubleshooting steps, you can hopefully get your M.2 drive to show up in the BIOS and start enjoying the benefits of faster storage speeds.
