Hi All, so I just installed a new crucial MX500 2T SSD, went into disk management and all was fine with setup and format then rebooted the PC but it wouldn't show a Bois splash screen and just sat there, tried a restart, did the same again, so removed the SSD and the PC booted into windows just fine, tried various sata ports, 2 posts but SSD not detected and another 2 failed posts as before, also tried an external docking station but no sign of life from HDD indicator, Amazon are replacing the SSD, any ideas as to what's gone wrong.

SSDs have a habit of just dying with absolutely zero warning or symptoms, not as much in the early days but it still happens. Unlike HDDs, there's no clicking, no bad sectors showing in disc scans, no noticeable hard drive thrashing. It just works one minute, is unrecoverably bricked the next.
It does show up somewhere, cannot remember where, maybe diskpart but shows either 0 or 1 mbs storage. (edited)
