Follow these steps if you are having issues with your desktop's SSD recognition:
I have a MX500 and it worked for the first two months. Then I got a blue screen crash. Upon reboot I tried to recover my windows installation from my SSD but it would not recover or repair. After putting in my old HDD drive and installing windows to that I was able to boot. However....
My SSD drive doesnt shown in my bios, it doesnt show in Disk Management and is missing from Device Manager. Upon playing around trying to fix this I discover it was showing as a USB drive on the `This PC` window. If I try to explore it I get told to insert a disk into the USB drive. I cannot format it. In device manager is shows as a USB drive in the Disk Drives section. I have also tried connecting it to a different SATA 3 port with the same problems.
There is juice going into it and the computer is detecting it, but it thinks its a USB drive! It also doesnt show in Crucial Storage Executive and Acronis wont run as it wont detect a SSD drive in my system. Please can I ask if there is a way to resolve all of this?
