Hello! I have a laptop Lenovo Y700 ISK which comes with 256 GB SSD and 1Tb HDD. Some day I was working as usual and at some point my laptop hanged completely, it was not responsive at all so I used a hard shutdown. OS was installed on SSD drive. After that my SSD is not recognized by BIOS or any other software, like it is plugged out. Is there anything I can do about it? Is that motherboard or SSD issue? Is there anything I can do about it? Thanks for your help guys :)

1) After remove that M2 SSD, put the cover back, and boot the laptop without the M2 SSD to see the screen will show something or not. If the laptop will say there is not boot device, that means the M2 SSD may have problem.

2) If you have other PC or laptop that is compatible with the M2 SSD, check it out to see it can be recognized or not in other computer. If it can't be recognized, you will need a new M2 for reinstall the OS, if you didn't have any backup.

  1. I tried to remove the SSD but nothing changes. I need a computer so I installed the OS on the other drive (HDD).
  2. Unfortunately I don't have a second laptop to check that.
Thanks for a reply!
