After replacing the SSD 256GB to 1TB the Power Led started blinking yellow 4 times, white one time when powered by the AC adapter. The internal battery seemes to be disabled somehow. Any suggestions whats missing? Open cover detection maybe? There are no error messages from the bios, windows is running without problems.

This seemed to be caused by accidentially switching of the little white switch right beside the ssd when placing the ssd into the connector. After switching it on again, it worked as before, no led blinking and running from battery again.
