Strange startup behaviour

Hi,

My PC startup behaved strangely lately.

On the 1st start up of the day, it is not detecting my M.2 SSD. Only when I power down, and power up again, it can then detect the SSD and startup normally. Other sata SSD and HDD can be detected.

Repowered the PC subsequently during the day can start up normally.

I have resit the graphics card, SSD, and RAM, and the SSD and HDDs, and even changed the CMOS battery. It still have this behaviour.

My setup that is coming to 4 years:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 1600
MB: Asus Prime B350 Plus
RAM: 16GB Cosiar RAM
M.2 Samsung M.2 960 EVO, 256GB

Power supply, Cosair 850W, I cannot remember how long it is used. Most likely 7+ year. But looking at the initial start up, the power supply seems to be healthy.
Reading from the BIOS at the initial startup:

Voltage:
+12V: 12.099V,
+5V: 4.932V,
+3.3V: 3.335V

CPU Core Voltage: 1.231 V
RAM voltage: 1.200V

Please advise what should I do to further isolate the issue.

Regards.

Well I had this same issue and my SSD (Intel 660p) failed after half a year, so...

Probably time to make a backup and buy a new SSD/send it in for warranty.

If you have a spare SSD (SATA or M.2), clone the OS to that SSD. Take out the 960 evo and boot with the cloned SSD to test if the problem recurs.

Thanks,

As mentioned in my original post, the MB can detect my Sata SSD and other 3 HDD, and it should be able to boot. So, the main issue is it cannot detect the M.2 SSD.

So, I am not able to detect if the problem lies at the MB, or M.2 SSD, or the power supply (My previous built has a not so good power supply, and thus giving me some problem).

Now, I am pondering whether to get another M.2 SSD just to isolate the problem or not.

By the way, is there any adapter available for me to mount my MicroSD card onto a M.2 card? So, I do not need to get any additional storage?
