I purchased an Intel 660p 2TB M.2 SSD couple days ago and I installed it right after it's delivered. Everything works fine until today. It just disappeared. I can't find it in device management or anywhere in BIOs (I might be missing someplace I need to look at cuz I'm not familiar with BIOs). I'm curious what happened. Any suggestion or idea on how to fix this issue?

Thanks for your advices in advance!

A good place to start would be giving a full list of ALL the parts in this system.
Yes, you are right.

My system is a Asus ROG G752VS laptop.
CPU is i7-6700HQ
GPU is GTX 1070
1 TB HDD
500GB M.2 Sumsany EVO 960
2TB M.2 Intel 660p (disappeared)

Let me know if more info needed

Possible the 660p is disconnected a little bit?
I have tried taking it out and re-inserted it to M.2 slot but still nothing worked. It was definitely working before.

I guess it worked once then it wouldn't be the case my BIOs is not supporting this new SSD.

Not sure what happened....

Either the drive is dead, or the motherboard port is dead.

What I would do:
Create a Linux LiveUSB, or even a Windows boot USB.

Remove the Samsung drive.
Boot up with the USB and see if the Intel is seen.
If not, swap the Intel to the other M.2 port and repeat the boot up.

Appreciate your advice here. I just tried switching both ssds' m.2 slot and intel still not seen but I can still boot with my samsung ssd. Guess my m.2 slot is alive. I will try a usb boot and double confirm this.

Really appreciate your help here! I'll keep you posted with the following.
