Add your system specifications and what you have tried.

This!

Also, were you properly grounded? Sounds like you possibly shorted out the motherboard or knocked something loose when installing the M.2 drive.

Of course without further information I'm just taking a wild a$$ guess as to some possibilities.

Where is the M2 slot located on your motherboard? You might have hit something with your hand and loosened something up.


Regardless, we really need more information.

Go back to basics. Is the power cord plugged in and the PSU switch ON?

Sometimes it can be werid things like these that is the issue. Easy to forget the power cord.

Helps to flip power supply back on , the system power button is useless without the power supply on. ;)
