My ADATA XPG SX8000 M.2 2280 PCIe Gen3x4 SSD isn't being detected in either of my motherboard's m.2 slots. Google searches haven't helped. What should I do?

Whats the Motherboard and CPU?

No, it doesn't show up.

Check your BIOS to see if theres any weird setting to disable NVME/PCI-E drives. If there isn't, RMA the drive. If the new one is duff, RMA the motherboard.

Are you sure that there aren't any other options? I waited 2 weeks for this to get shipped, and it was $150 off.

If it isnt showing up then I can't think of any other. Everything about that setup is NVME compatible.
