Formatting error now Not Initialized

I have m.2 sata ssd that i got from my friend and i decided to use it on my PC. When i got it i decided it was a good idea to re-format the disk before using, however after formating disk management stated that there was an error so i decided to restart my PC and now its showing that its Not Initialized.

Bad news: you got unlucky and the SSD most likely just died. You should check it in another PC, but I'm pretty certain there's nothing left to do other than toss it now.

Run a secure erase on the SSD and try again. Maybe try using diskgenius  if still not working- after if it still does not recognize the disk - initialize it with diskpart (cmd/powershell)

According the screenshot the disk is not initialized. You will need to do that in order for it to appear as a partition.

Does the SSD appear in the BIOS?

Windows would display the drive's size, if any of that was possible. The fact that Windows cannot even determine the drive's size is because the issue is deeper than just there not being a partition-table.

Based on this I would say most probably the drive is dead.
