Go to the device manager, Uninstalled the device and then restart the computer. The driver will get installed automatically and then it will work again.

You can also uninstall the updates and then check. If its a problem with Windows update then dont install the updates for the time being. Wait for more patches to be introduced from Microsoft.

Thanks

    Try inserting a Memory card and then check if it appears under My computer. You can also clean the Card reader with a Air spray to make sure the contacts are clean.



    If you can send me the Model no. of your Laptop I can check for the same. Since its a laptop and I guess the card reader is an internal one.



    Thanks

    Ok. In that case you need to reinstall driver for Intel Chipset.



    Please click on this link http://support.gateway.com/support/drive...



    You have to enter the serial no. for your computer and download the necessary drivers and reinstall it. Also send me the serial no. so that I can look for it.



    Thanks

My gateway desktop does not recognize any sd/xd cards


Either the Card Reader isn't plugged in, or isn't any good.

Repair would be to purchase another Card Reader, but after checking the USB header/s on the motherboard, that the Card Reader is plugged into.
(FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions)

Or you can use an external Card Reader, and plug it into a USB port,

Your keyboard has a problem too. It's stuck in capital letters.

Sd card wont show up on my gateway gt5228


You are missing the drivers for the card reader. They usually come with the chipset driver installation. I looked up your driver downloads on gateway support and it says there is also a driver in the "others" section caller "motherboard driver"

So, what you want to do is go to there site at the link below and download the "chipset" driver and the "motherboard" driver and install them. that should fix your problem.

Why doesnt my sd card reader work? I put in my gateway laptop and it doesnt work nothing pops up??


You might just have a bad SD card. Also, if you bought a card that is 4gb or more then you need a SDHC card reader. The HC stands for High Capacity. Look at the card to see if it shows HC under the SD. If it does then you need to find out if your card reader can read SDHC. If it can't then you need to go buy a new card reader that can do SDHC.

Dell laptop DVD issue


If you have Vista OS, it could be a problem after installing ATI's Catalyst Software Suite. If you recently installed it, try uninstalling it or rolling it back to an older version.

Sandisk card reader wont detect my sandisk card.


Hello,
This problem arises because your USB is not recognized by your computer. This issue can be solved by following the steps given below.

SOLUTIONS:
  1. Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the start menu, select the 'Run' option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click 'Ok'. From the 'Action' Mmnu, click 'scan for hardware changes'. This will make Windows recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all device managers and control panels. Now see if your computer will read the USB device.
If the above method doesnt work, then try the following,

Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management,

1.Click Start, and then click Run
2.Type devmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
3.Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed:
4.Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
5. Click the Power Management tab.
6. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

PS: If you perform the following procedure on a laptop computer, you may reduce the battery life.
