Suddenly my Intel SSD 600P M.2 NVMe stopped working. When powering on my T460s laptop it stops booting and seems to wait for the M.2 stick or something. Removing the M.2 stick and I can boot into the BIOS menue normally. I was running Linux with no special workload and rebooted yesterday when it suddenly happened. The controller chip on the stick (it is labled SMI) gets quite hot when touching, maybe it got stuck in a loop? I cannot boot into anything because the M.2 stick blocks the system.
- I wonder weather these Intel 600P SSD NVMe sticks can fail just like that?
- Is there maybe some possibity to reset the controller?
- Is there some possibility to recover data from the stick?
