So recently I got a Lenovo Y520, and decided to install a Samsung M.2 970 EVO SSD. I installed Windows and all appropriate drivers. After a while of using the computer, sometimes it happens that windows apps and various 3rd party apps don't start, they just show the splash screen and maybe if im lucky they open. What I also noticed is that Control Panel, Searching on Start Menu don't work. Another thing that happens is that the taskbar doesn't show the Wifi icon even though the internet works on Chrome. I have tried running a MemTest and it passed successfully. I also did a Windows reinstall and the problem reappeared after a couple of reboots. Restarting the PC does fix the problem until it appears again. This is really excruciating since I can't appear to find a similar problem online or a solution.

Hmmmm, that's quite weird since I performed every test on it (benchmark, SMART) and everything about those seem fine. Also the drive itself works when the problem appears so I don't know..
