are you sure it's seated in the m2 slot appropriately and in the correct m2 slot if you need to be specific?

You could try to reseat it just be sure. Double check your motherboard manual for any gotchas, like use a certain m2 slot first. Or make sure you're not using certain SATA inputs that might be disabled by using a particular m2 slot. Do you need any certain BIOS settings configured.

Below are the few factors that can lead to SSD failure:

  1. Malfunctioning of electronic components.
  2. Bugs in SSD’s firmware.
  3. Sudden loss of power supply during drive’s operation.
  4. Controller chip going crazy.
  5. Excessive bad blocks on the SSD.
  6. Wearing of NAND cells with age.

I will suggest you to check out the below blog to know the solutions for an unresponsive SSD.
