Hey, I recently bought a 970 EVO drive for my computer and windows or my bios won't detect it, I've put it in the Ultra M.2 slot and I don't know what to do. Please help.

Motherboard : B450m Steel Legend
CPU : Ryzen 7 3700x
GPU : RTX 2060
RAM : 2 x 8 2133 (2133) G.Skill Trident Z
Bios Version : 2.90

Which M.2 slot did you try? You need to use the M2_1 slot for NVME drives.

I used the top M.2 slot, the one that says Ultra M.2

I did also try the bottom slot and still no bios recognition.

Check this thread:

I am afraid I have not used NVME drives with my systems so can't offer much more
than I already have as advice.

Still no help. Someone please help me, I'm starting to think that the SSD might be broken or my motherboard M.2 slot isn't working.

Did you read the thread I linked? It covers your exact problem multiple times.

Yes, I read the thread. I'm still saying that I tried the solutions and they never worked.

You can try cleaning the contacts in the slot with some isopropyl alcohol and a
cotton bud, also clean the contacts on the drive itself. When clean make sure the
M.2 drive is fully inserted into the slot and give it another go. If that still
fails you can try returning the drive. If you have another system to test it in
that would be even better.

I would say either a bad M.2 or bad M.2 slot, sadly, easiest way is to get a cheap-o $30 NVMe and test

I have 2 of these with customers (and the older b350m pro 4 as well) and no issues so far (knock on wood)
