Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

What other drives are installed in your computer?

Check the motherboard's User Guide Manual.

Ensure that you have properly installed the nvme ssd with respect to any other drives that are installed.

There can be conflicts with respect to the SATA ports being used.

thx for quick response
ive checked the guide and it doesnt say much about m2 slots, just that i should use M2P, which is the one ive been using. i have a HDD installed already, so how do i know if the ssd is respecting the other drives and SATA ports?

Does the following link match your motherboard?

https://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_z390-aorus-ultra_1001_181120_e.pdf

Verify that that is indeed the correct manual.

If so, then refer to physically numbered Pages 19,20, and 21.

(Or the applicable pages in the User Manual matching your motherboard.)

Read the fine print and the notes.

Look at the SATA port numbering scheme on Page 19 - doublecheck that the cables are in the desired SATA port by number.

Not sure about using M2P - what was it that indicated to do so?

Is this the link to your SSD:

https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-970-evo-nvme-m-2-1tb-mz-v7e1t0bw/

In the manual, Section 1-8, Page 15 there is a diagram of the motherboard showing the locations of the M.2 connectors.

Which connector did you use? M2P being the bottom most connector with respect to the motherboard diagram.

However, reading back: did you inialize the drive?
