If you have multipule m.2 slot's make sure your m.2 card is in the first slot if you only have one of dosnt enable the second port till you have a m.2 in the first port. Is your bios set to read m.2 cards or is that feature auto off by Asus on this board? Some mobo's "you" have to enable the m.2 ports

Besides other suggestions, also make sure that you have bought a SSD whose interface is compatible to your PC.

Note: a SATA SSD will have M+B Keys edge but a PCIe NVMe SSD will have only M Key edge - while they (NVMe SSDs) are much faster than a SATA SSD. And since you have bought a replacement SSD (an SSD generally have 5 years replacement warranty) so your computer appears to be older and likely to be using a SATA SSD, please confirm this first.

Do your chips provide a manufacture date on them this could be a series of bad chips
