m.2 ssd PCI-E is not working.
I currently bought a new motherboard b450 ds3h and I bought a Kingston a2000 500 gb M.2 ssd.
After building my pc, everything works but the m.2 is not detected at all.
Help, I don't know how to solve this.

yea my MOBO has a m.2 PCI-e slot
Your motherboard has an M.2 port, that can utilize either an NVMe drive like that Kingston, OR a SATA III M.2 drive.
However, this depends on the CPU used.

With your Athlon, that M.2 port can ONLY use a SATA III M.2 drive.
Like a Samsung 860 EVO M.2, Crucial MX500, others.

The CPU you have limits the compatibility of that port.
