Hey guys
I'm here with my friend's notebook, an ASUS UX310UA. I'm just installing an M.2 from Crucial (CT250MX500SSD4). The installing was pretty easy, the slot was empty so I just put the component in place. Unluckily, once the M.2 is installed, the PC wont boot up. I'ts not a power problem because some of the lights works. It's obviously a compatibility problem because if I uninstall the component the PC works as before.
I've read some similar threads going on for the same brand of M.2, but no one seems to have solved it.
Do you have any hint? Thanks a lot!

Oook, so BIOS was already up to date, unplugged the HDD but it didn't change. Also, I've tryied something more unorthodox: powered up the PC without neither the HDD or the M2 plugged. While in the bios I plugged the SSD. Open hearth surgery way. PC just shut off. Could it be a power problem? Or some contact between the PCBs?
