[HELP] - My SSD Is Running Slow!

Hello friends,

I have a 240GB SanDisk SSD Plus, which was running very slow from yesterday night. I have been using this for 1 year, but this kind of problem I had never faced before. This problem starts after working on the computer for a while.

Not understanding what to do, I did some online researches and found this post where suggested to enable AHCI mode from the BIOS menu, I have not done it before. So my query is if I enable it, will I face any issues in the future? Kindly respond to this thread.
