Hi, I carefully switched out a PCIe SSD on a Lenovo Flex 14" today and the wireless device stopped working. I can no longer see the wireless device in Device Manager and it's not there as an unknown or hidden device either. I reinstalled the wireless driver *successfully" from the Lenovo support site but still the wireless adapter didn't appear in Device Manager. It's like switching out the SSD shorted the wireless card and now it's entirely undetectable by Win 10. I removed and reseated the wireless card on the mobo but still the wireless devices can't be detected. I reset the winsock and tcp/ip settings too. Any ideas how to fix the issue or is it equipment failure? SSD was delicately removed from an unplugged laptop and I was grounded creating no static. Laptop also passed the Lenovo diagnostics tool despite having no wireless adapter/device. Thanks
