Fix for laptop ssd issue

Hello, i have a hp pavillion gaming 15, i opened it to put a new ssd on and now it doesnt start, after putting it back together i plugged it into the charger and the charger light turned on and it made a little whining sound and nothing happened afterwards, i then tried pressing the power button for a minute in a variety of ways, battery on or off, charger on or off with or without battery, then after pressing power for a while without battery and then plugging it into charger it started for a few seconds, not enough time for screen to come up and after that nothing happens not even charger light on when charger is connected. Henry at geek squad support suggested to remove the ssd, I replaced the ssd and that fixed the issue on my hp pavilion laptop.

1. Check the TRIM command
Click Start and in the search bar type cmd
Right-click Command Prompt and click Open as AdministratorCommand-prompt-run-as-administrator (2)
Type fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify and press Enter
TRIM command
If you get 0 as a result, it means TRIM is already enabled. If you get 1, please make sure you follow the next steps
Type fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0
2. Optimize drivers
Click Start and in the search bar type Defragment and Optimize Drives
Click Defragment and Optimize Drives
Highlight your SSD and click on Optimize
optimize drives
With Windows 10, Microsoft added the Optimize Drives feature which runs the TRIM command on your SSD. So please check whether Windows is optimizing your SSD.

3. Check that AHCI Mode is enabled
Open Device Manager
Expand the IDE ATA / ATAPI Controllers
If you see AHCI Controller in the list, you have it enabled. In case you see only ATA and IDE words you are likely to have AHCI disabled on your computer
device manager AHCI
AHCI Mode plays a significant role in maintaining the high performance of your SSD. If this mode is disabled, the computer can encounter crashes or even see the very famous but unwanted blue screen of death.

If AHCI is disabled and you want to enable it on Windows 10, here is what you need to do:

Go to these keys and set the value named Start to 0:





Restart your computer and go to UEFI/BIOS firmware settings to enable AHCI mode. After you save and exit restart your computer once more

I hope these method will be helpful!
