    Firstly, make sure BIOS is fully updated.

    Now open Disk Manager.

    Right-click on the internal hard drive and select "Properties".

    Under the Policies tab, make sure "write caching on the device" is enabled, there is no "optimize for quick removal" enabled.

    Click OK.

    You can also modify through registry edit. Here is the Microsoft reference article below. Kindly follow the steps.
