    It could just be a loose cable as reseating fixed it. Its worth going to ssdmakers site and see if they have adisk test software specific to your drive

    Make sure you remove and re-seat ALL cables from the MOBO to the SSD you might try this a few times too. Then remove CMOS battery remove AC power and press power button for a few minutes to remove all residual capacitance from the MOBO. replace CMOS,
    reconnect power cable to AC and try to start again...what happens? Follow up for us please. Thanks.
