Samsung 860 evo m.2 not detecting on auros gaming ultra

Kevin Fuller

So I just bought a samsung 860 evo 1tb m.2 and I checked in the bios to see if it was detecting and it isn't detecting any NVMe or new storage device at all. I checked Tom's hardware (didn't have anything) and tried samsung's website (which didn't have anything either). I haven't owned an M.2 before so this is new ground for me, and I am trying to give my younger brother my old SSD as a Christmas present, if anyone has a solution please help QQ

 

EDIT: I am dumb enough to not remember to go into partitions problem solved -.-

Are you certain it's supported?

In other words, call the computer maker and ask them.

Perhaps it needs a BIOS update?

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

When you say "computer maker" do you mean the mother board provider or like maker because I built

Make sure that you installed the SSD in the M2A_32G slot. The M2Q one is PCIe only. Your 860 Evo is a SATA drive.

Yep! The manufacturer of the motherboard, but if you post the model number of your motherboard, we can verify it from here and see if it is compatible...

It should be somewhere in the MOBO or the packaging like these examples, check their website they have several models for the AORUS GAMING: https://www.aorus.com/product-list.php?t=53

I checked them all and these ports are compatible with M.2 SSD type PCIe Generation 3, 4 lanes and 2 lanes and, in addition, they are also compatible with M.2 SATA type drives.

So, what I'm saying is that the problem is not the motherboard, checked your SSD on another machine and if it is not even detected in the BIOS, then you have a faulty SSD.

Alright um. I got the ssd working. New question... Why is it that when I put my pc back together my frames start high and immediately drop to the 3-7fps range

It could be for several different types of problems. First make sure you have the updated drivers, then go to device manager and disable the Intel graphic so that the machine uses the GPU at all times.
