I was preparing for RMA. Also i tried CMOS nothing happen then i tried oldies method, i took bios battery then it resetted and board lights was on.
I installed AMD Chipset drivers but when i checked in device manager it was showing microsoft driver on all sata devices and also for nvme too so i manually install AMD sata drivers(some people are saying Microsoft drivers are better).
So far today is second day Kingston SSD is working normally after ErP changed. Very interesting.
I have seen lots of issues with iCue and other RGB sofware not playing nice together. So that explains the ERP setting helping out there.
Only other thing that I can suggest is uninstalling all RGB software then install 1 at a time until your issues pop back up
Installing the AMD Chipset driver was so that you would get optimal performance (mostly due to Ryzen Power Plan) as it is needed to get optimal boosting and better scheduling. I only mentioned it since you stated this was your first AMD build and after installing Windows nothings shows up prompting you to install Chipset driver and there are no obvious signs in device manager either. I was wrong about it installing AMD sata drivers though, I must have seen SMBus Drivers and seen Sata. So don't worry too much about that but concentrate all of your trouble shooting on the RBG specifically iCue.
Under Device Manager look under Storage Controllers to verify Which NVME Driver is in use. In the Pic I Have Samsung 970 evo so it shows the Samsung Driver. You will have to run benchmarks for your specific NVME drive and see which one is better for you. If any of the disappearing drives is your NVME then I would use the NVME Drive Manufacturer driver for sure if offered. Some cheaper drives just rely on Microsoft driver.
I hope you get your issue sorted as you should not have to remove the battery to get your system to start.
