Is that normal or are these modules faked? I bought this ram for regular laptop and you know they can't tell a difference but on this I did tell a difference immediately especially with response time. One thing I don't like and don't understand is why ddr4 2666 is all single rank and dual rank memory when it's been proven that dual rank is better but anyway if you only have 1 memory slot I highly recommend this ram.

Leave the SSD powered on for an hour, then unplug it for a minute, then repeat another time or two. I've also seen an SSD come back to life after sitting unpowered for a couple of years. If you can communicate with the SSD, then maybe you could try a Secure Erase on the SSD, but the SSD will need to be connected to an internal SATA controller or to an external eSATA port. Depending on the method used to do this, it could brick the SSD if the process does not finish as it will have set an ATA Security password which may be unknown. Using a Knoppix Linux boot disk where you supply your own password for the Secure Erase is the only safe way to possibly unlock the SSD later if the process fails. BIOS but not Disk Management? Are you sure? Please post a screencap of your Disk Management.
