Question NVMe SSD suddenly unrecognisable

Hey guys,
So my Samsung EVO 980 500 GB NVMe SSD isn't showing up on my BIOS all of a sudden. This drive had my Windows 10 installed on it so I can't even get into my OS.

This is a newly built machine and it was working all fine for about a month until this happened today. I left the machine on whilst I went out for an hour, when i came back the BIOS was up and the NVMe not showing up at all.

I've tried uninstalling it, re-installing it. Changing ports, adjusting BIOS settings, including enabling CSM Launch and NVMe RAID mode. All to no avail. I think the drive might have just given up on me as I realised I had installed it without the little mount underneath the screw. So it was installed on the motherboard at a slight angle. This is the only thing I can think of as to why it's given up all of a sudden. Idk, what do you think?

Please let me know if you think there's something I'm missing that could solve this.

My specs:
MB: ASUS Prime B550M-A
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
RAM: 2x Corsair Vengence LPX 16GB (32GB)
GPU: MSI GTX 1650
PSU: Corsair RM650

I don't think, they make those anymore.
950 Pro would be ~ 5 years old. If unused, then sitting on a shelf all this time.

Are you sure about the model name? May be it's 970 Evo instead?
Yes you're right, I realised I made a typo and have amended the post. The model I have is the EVO 980
