Re: Lenovo V330 doesn´t recognize Samsung 960 EVO NVMe

Out of curiosity, what is the Samsung part number showing on the original equipment SSD's label?

 

Regards.

Re: Lenovo V330 doesn´t recognize Samsung 960 EVO NVMe

Thanks for providing the numbers.

 

While I don't have any experience with V series machines, I can't think of a reason why the laptop shouldn't be able to use the EVO. That only leaves me to believe that the EVO is electrically dead. Do you have another laptop available that you could plug the SSD into to at least see if the BIOS recognizes it?

 

Regards.

Re: Lenovo V330 doesn´t recognize Samsung 960 EVO NVMe

Hi Parmas

 

Sorry if I am asking somethings you have already answered. 

 

Might I please ask if the problematic SSD is shown / detected in the BIOS?

 

If the SSD is detected by the BIOS but is not detected by Windows would you consider testing the drive by installing it and attempting a temporary boot to Linix from a USB stick.  This would not require installing the OS on either of your existing drives.  Once booted into Linux you would be able to see if the drive is detected beyond the BIOS.  If this is the case it could be a Windows issue.

Re: Lenovo V330 doesn´t recognize Samsung 960 EVO NVMe

I looked at the site, but it contained a link to software that doesn't look acceptable, and the page also decided to throw up a pop-up that was not dismissable. As you see, I've removed the link.

 

In any case, much of the commentary on the page was about the drive not being usable/visible in Windows. Since you're not seeing the SSD in the BIOS, that's not applicable.

 

This may seem like an elementary point, but I'll ask it anyway: Are you putting in the hold-down screw when you insert the new SSD?

 

Regards.

Re: Lenovo V330 doesn´t recognize Samsung 960 EVO NVMe

I saw it didn´t fix anything and I uninstalled inmediatly.
And yes I put in the hold down scree when I inserted SSD and that´s weird because after re install my older ssd nvme in same way, BIOS inmediatly detected.
