I have recently completed a new build and I am having some issues with my M.2 slots.
ROG Strix z590-E
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400
EVGA RTX 3070 Ti
The specs for storage are as follows:
Supports 4 x M.2 slots and 6 x SATA 6Gb/s ports
IntelÃ‚Â®11th &10th Gen Processors*
M.2_1 slot (Key M), type 2242/2260/2280/22110
M.2_2 slot (Key M), type 2242/2260/2280/22110
- IntelÃ‚Â® 11th processors support PCIe 4.0 x4 mode
I installed my Samsung 980 Pro NVMe SSD in the M.2_1 slot. It works fine and my Win 10 is on it.
However, my older Samsung 870 EVO NMVe SSD that I installed in the M.2_2 slot is not being recognized. It works fine in the other 2 slots: M.2_3 and M.2_4, just not in the M.2_2!
I tried the 980 Pro in the M.2_2 to rule out an SSD problem and the 980 Pro did not work in the M.2_2 slot either.
Any idea as to why the M.2_2 slot is not working?
