Hello all. I'm back here again after just posting a few days ago about fixing my messed up laptop. Although my laptop IS working again, as the title suggest there are issues with my SSD. If you didn't catch my last topic here's the link: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/680751/help-fixing-a-malfunctioning-ssd-a-question-about-a-bios-update/?p=4533446

1. Ran a bios update provided by laptop manufacturer.
2. Computer didn't reboot like I expected it to and when I did turn my laptop back on manually, windows no longer worked and instead the laptop booted straight to bios.
3. Connected an external HDD with windows installed to the messed up laptop to see what was going on and everything seemed to be in working order. There was a slight issue with not being able to view the SSD's originally but a driver update fixed that.
4. Used a usb repair stick to reinstall windows 8 back on to one of the SSD's and upgraded to widows 10 after.
Issue 1: One of my SSD's is showing up as E drive but can't be accessed or formatted and shows 0/0 space.

Issue 2: Bios is showing a correct FW version number, a correct EC FW version number, but an incorrect date.
I would obviously like to figure out and fix both issues but getting my other SSD back is definitely the priority. Everything is backed up so I don't mind reinstalling/reformatting if need be.
