  2. Why is my computer locking up on boot after installing M.2 SSD

    My brother suggested that I unplug the current SSD in my computer and leave the HDD drive alone. Install the M.2 SSD and boot into BIOS. He said the two SSD's might be causing a conflict and once the BIOS is allowed to identify the new M.2 SSD I should be able to plug the other one back in. Should I give that a shot?

  3. Installed m.2 ssd into my computer and it booted but then I restarted it and now it won't boot to the BIOS or Windows

    I recently purchased a new NVME m.2 ssd for my PC. So I installed it no bother and then when I went to turn it on, everything booted normally and I was in windows. I noticed it didn't show up in the file explorer, so I decided to restart the pc and go to the bios but when I did, it beeps once when I turn it on but then doesn't boot to windows or the BIOS. I am quite confused with what the issue is.

    My PC specs are-

    • CPU- AMD Ryzen 5 2400G
    • MOBO- Asus PRIME A320M-K
    • GPU-ASUS AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT DUAL
    • RAM- Corsair Vengeance 8GB 2400MHz
    • HDD- Seagate 1TB Harddrive
    • New SSD- WD Blue SN550 1TB NVME M.2 2280 PCIe Gen3 SSD
    My monitor just stays black when I turn the PC on. I would appreciate any help.
    Thanks.

  4. I have installed a new m.2 pcie3 SSD, and now it won't boot or let me into bios

    Bought new M.2 SSD, PC will not boot while it's installed

    Hey gents -

    I went back to micro center and they absolutely insisted that the SSD I bought is compatible with the motherboard. They thought my problem to be bizarre and suggested that I swap the SSDs around (so that my normal SSD is in the "Ultra M.2" slot and the new empty SSD is in the normal M.2 slot). Well, that made my issue even stranger.

    When my normal SSD is plugged into the "Ultra M.2" slot, I am able to get to BIOS and UEFI, but the computer refuses to boot normally. Two boot options show up under my UEFI menu - Realtek PXE and some kind of non-network boot option. Booting with the PXE option launches something called "Realtek Gigabit Ethernet Controller" and presents me with an error: "PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable". Booting with the other option boots the computer as if there is nothing plugged into either slot - it prompts me to plug in a boot device and "press any key".

    I do not know what is going on here. If the "Ultra M.2" slot does not work as the above result leads me to believe, why does my computer bug out when the empty drive is plugged into it?

    If it would help, I could take photos so you all could get a better idea of what is going on.
