I've already bought a new M.2 SSD

Kingston A400 SSD Internal Solid State Drive M.2 2280 240GB Hard Disk SSD For laptop
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Kingston-A400-SSD-Internal-Solid-State-Drive-M-2-2280-120GB-240GB-Hard-Disk-HDD-HD/32982207239.html?spm=a2g0s.12269583.0.0.260711b4VVcHn2
and I assembled it into my Acer Aspire laptop whose model: E5-576G-51ET

The laptop has become extremely slow after assembling even while opening BIOS. Also, The SSD is reading in BIOS as PS3111 in the HDD1 model name.

I tried several things and nothing changed:
1- I removed the main HDD.
2- I changed the boot options in the BIOS settings from UEFI to legacy and vice versa.
3- SATA configuration for the port 0 and 1 are enabled and I changed the port 1 to disabled and found the laptop worked as usual not extremely slow.

I don't have other devices to try this SSD on it.
I don't know if my laptop supports this kind of SSD or not?

These are some photos of what I got

I've already updated the BIOS version. I am staying with UEFI boot mode and AHCI mode. Unfortunately, nothing changed. I see
HDD1 model name: PS3111
This is a controller, not the model.
I don't know and so confused if this kind of SSD m.2 is compatible with the model of laptop or not?! and if so why it doesn't work?!
