Question Corsair Force MP600 M.2 Drive not showing up in Windows, but visible in BIOS after restart ?

Mar 24, 2021

I've been encountering a strange issue with my m.2 drive. It is a Corsair Force MP600 1TB. It is a relatively new device, I got it a few months ago. However recently I have been encountering an issue where after rebooting my system, my m.2 is not showing up under my list of drives on windows. Restarting my computer and going into my bios screen will show that it is being detected by my motherboard, but when I do a self-test it will fail.

That being said, sometimes when I reboot it WILL show up and be usable (it currently is while writing this), and seems to show up when I turn on RAID mode. That being said I am concerned this will turn into a big problem down the line. Is it possible my drive is starting to fail on me already? Could it be the m.2 slot going bad? Or is it some kind of driver/bios issue?

Here are the rest of my specs:
