I just installed my Samsung 980 Pro SSD in my computer and even the BIOS is not detecting it. It is a Gen 4 NVME M.2 SSD in the Gen 4 slot, and I have a Gen 3 NVME M.2 SSD in the Gen 3 slot that came pre-installed with my computer. The motherboard is a Gigabyte B560 DS3H AC and my processor is an i5-11400F. I took out my main SSD that came with the computer and replaced it in the same slot with my Samsung 980 PRO and it detected it. Then, I decided to keep the Samsung SSD in that slot and put my main SSD in the slot I was trying to put the Samsung in and then it didn't detect the main SSD. Finally, I switched the main SSD back to its normal slot and the Samsung to the slot I am trying to install it in and it's back to not detecting the Samsung SSD. This means that it has something to do with the slot and/or running 2 NVME SSD's at the same time. Is there something in the BIOS I have to change or it this somehow a faulty M.2 connector?
