What board do you have? Some boards don't like certain M.2s.

Due to the above, I've likely revised posts <30 min old, and do not think as you do.

The current board that I am running is the ASUS Prime A320M-E
I have looked it up and it says that it should support the M.2 Drive

Full specs? A320s usually require updates for newer processors and support for certain PCIe devices is often stripped to facilitate support in those updates.

Which board? And what is the RAM SKU? Gotta get specific with these things.

The board should have its manufacturer / model number printed on it in at least one or two places. Pictures may help. The RAM SKU is the actual model / part # of the RAM. I've seen RAM instability issues cause weird things before and I want to eliminate that as a possibility, but I need those two pieces of information to do so. Also, having the board manufacturer / model # will help in finding out whether BIOS update could be a factor.

 

To quote another member here, asking for computer help without knowing your components is like taking your car to the mechanic and just saying "It's a red Toyota and it's making a noise." We have no way of knowing how your system is set up, hence we need information to determine potential conflicts and causes.

Can at least show a clear picture of the board? Knowing the board will help a lot in determining whether there are conflicts with any other components.

Did you configure the slot for M.2 SATA SSDs so that it works correctly with them? Or did you leave the default setting which is normally for M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs? Probably what your issue is or maybe a UEFI update is needed or the drive just isn’t good and you need another.
