Question NVMe Drive randomly disappears from BIOS, blue screens on startup and rarely in use

As the title says my NVMe drive doesn't show up in BIOS sometimes. It usually happens after I set my PC to sleep or after I shut it down. I'll boot, and it'll just bring me to the setup screen. I have no idea what could be causing it, I have to reboot the PC either a few or many times before it finally boots to Windows - and then sometimes it'll blue screen immediately on startup. I have been just leaving my PC overnight so I don't have to deal with the fiddling with it, and it has worked for the most part. Rarely I will get a WHEA bsod while I'm using the PC, but this has been a nondaily occurrence. It seems to me that the problem is definitely either my motherboard or my drive itself. Is there a way to discern which it is? Thanks!
My drive in question is the Samsung EVO 970 1TB
My motherboard is the Gigabyte B360M DS3H, and I have the latest BIOS.
The bluescreens have not produced any crash dumps.

It said it didn't support a diagnostic scan for my drive, but when I run the benchmark it always blue screens before 20% completion
