I just installed a new m.2 drive everything was working fine for a day, i shut the computer down to go to work, turned it on when i got back home and now one of my ssd's are gone? it's not showing up in Disk part, device manager or disk manager, I have swapped the sata cable with one of the dvd drives and also one of the working ssd's and it still doesnt show up anywhere, is there anything else I can do? or did this thing just poop the bed?

Using M.2 drive may disable some of sata ports.
Check motherboard manual about sata ports, that get affected.

Anyway - SSD can die too.
What model was it? How old?

If it really did die, then I highly daubt, if M.2 had anything to do with it.

I've had the asus prime b350-plus and the m2 slots share bandwidth with the sata 5/6 ports
So if you can connect them to 1-4, 5/6 won't work
