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.

SOURCE: gateway sb-4100-b won't recognize new memory

REmove all the old memory and replace it by a new memory, you should test memory 1 by 1 .

first install the 1 memory in the first slot. then boot the computer using only 512mb. if this successful. shutdown and insert the second memory, then test again.

note: memory should be:

1. DDR SDRAM
2. the two 512 should be the same brand.

Did you check the type of the memory card the motherboard of your computer would support? It may be a DDR1 or DDR2 and also check how much memory your motherboard can hold. You disconnect the memory card and check to see if the computer would turn on.

Boot into safe mode and see if you can either roll back the driver restore the computer to the date right before you downloaded it.  the link is for directions on how to boot into safe mode.   Another option , if you have on board graphisc alos is to hook up the monitor to the onboard  turn it on in BIOS and change the driver for the card using the onther graphics.

SOURCE: my Gateway GT5654 desktop just quit in the middle

Based on my experience, the most probable cause of your problem is the RAM. Try Cleaning the RAM first by removing it from the slot, and rub the pins with a pencil eraser. As shown on the image below: 263dfab.jpg

Then re-install it to the motherboard. If problem persist, you may need to replace your RAM.

Note: If you have two RAMs on your pc, might as well clean them both, and then test each RAM to find out if either one of them or both are busted.

Won t recognize sd card


It seems that the card reader if the computer is not detecting the card. Make sure that the memory card you use is supported.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to Secure Digital card (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD). Specific models of the Aspire One are also equipped with an SD Expansion slot that can read and write to Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC) cards.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick Duo,and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards but require the use an adapter. Acer does not provide or support any memory card adapters.
You can try removing the card reader using the device manager and the reinstall it and check the operation. You may also try using the card is different computer and check. Also try using another card in the computer with the issue and check. If the issue is not resolved please revert back with the model number.

How can I get the card reader to recognize sdhc cards


It's not your card reader, the SDHC mini firmware is dead that's why your reader cannot detect it. Warranty, return it to SanDisk for a new one. Every hardware you plug or attach to a PC or Laptop has what is called a firmware, a mini program that communicates with your PC and Laptop that's how they syst

Can not gt my sd card into the slot do u need a spefic kind


Yes the type of card matters for the slot. If your pc/ laptop is newer and you have never used the slot, then more than likely the dummy plastic piece is still in it. This needs to be removed before you can insert any cards into it. Also, an SD card will only fit an SD slot, there are many other types of cards as well. If your card slot says that it will except SD, XD, miniSD, and so on.....then you can insert the SD card that you have.

My acer ast180 ua381 does not recognize sd cards over 2 gigs no matter what card reader i use or what micro card i use ( ie 4, 8, 16, 32 gig) and nothing changed after i upgraded to windows from vista.


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads as required.

The information is normally free of charge.


You need the drivers! Down load the drivers and it should work.

I hope this helps.

AST135-US3303 has reader for XD, SD, etc but will not recognize my SD card when inserted. The light beside the card comes on but no window appears (XP home)and I cannot get to my data. Card works in...


Quick test for you if you insert the card and you can send a file from you computer say any document and it transfers across and read it back the card and the reader are ok. It will be the file type of the pictures that it at fault most cameras memory cards are of a Raw format and some OS's dont like it. Try a blank SD card if you have one, format it on the computer then insert in camera and see if after you take a few pic you can see the file.
