    G20AJ US009S - SSD not showing up (post upgrade after a few years) - solved?

    So… for some weird reason last night my Samsung 850 EVO 500gb doesn't show up in the bios so it doesn't boot to it (Bios set to other OS) I did however a few days ago installed a 6TB Seagate cloned the original 1TB SSHD that was acting as a secondary drive. everything worked fine for a couple days. then it randomly crapped out on me. 6TB seems to be perfectly fine. the SSD just doesn't want to show up. i did at some point get it to show up in bios after fiddling around then was forced to reinstall windows cuz it couldn't fix it. then after moving the appropriate game files over to the D drive (Destiny 2) i rebooted and the system again… won't see the SSD. Is it possible the Seagate 6TB is drawing too much power from the system preventing the Samsung SSD from initializing? or is it just that the G20AJ's bios is so damn broken? I'm not booting UEFI or Raid btw. though i think at some point it did switch to raid for some reason, but i switched it back to AHCI.

    Anyway has anyone else encountered this strange circumstance? is my only solution buy a new case, board, cpu, ram, PSU & CPU Cooler? cuz i really don't want to do that right now.

    Seagate 6TB drive in question: PM: Operating: 9W Idle: 7.2W Standby / Sleep:*0.6W/0.6W
    Samsung 850 EVO 500GB *Average: 3.4 W *Maximum: 5 W

    other notes:

    Running with Dell 330W PSU as the 2nd power unit with the 180W
    Still running Nvidia GTX1080 in the system.*
