Acer aspire 5920 power turns off when sd card inserted into slot

Hi i am a newbie on this site and only found it today!

I have an acer aspire 5920 laptop and recently purchased a micro sd card with adaptor for use with my laptop / samsung tocco mobile phone.

I slid the micro sd into the adapter and put the card into the sd slot on my computer.
before i could fully push the card in the power on my computer turned off.

I tried the card a few more times and the same thing happened.

i also tried a micro memory stick & adapter and the same thing happened with that.

I called in to curry's where i purchased the computer only to be told that my 7 months old computer needs repairing and COULD take upto 28DAYS!

Any help would be much appreciated.

This is most likly to be an internal fault, your laptop has saftety trips in it and if there is a short circuit or anything of the kind it will power itself off. 

just going to have to wait out the 28 days, If you have an extended warrunty there is a possibility they will provide a courtesy laptop during repair, its unlikly but have a read through your documentation if you do.

How does the 5 in 1 card reader work on the Acer Aspire 5920 laptop? I am not sure how to get the SD card into this slot. Thanks


There should be 5 slots. Near each slot has the trademark of the card that the slot is for. If you are unable to identify the trademarks or there aren't any ways of finding which slot is which, then try each slot. Do not force your SD card into the slot. There should be only one slot that is the perfect fit for the SD card. Just slightly change the angle of the SD card until it slides in. The SD card has little to no extra room so it will take a little while to get the SD card in. Also the slot is spring loaded so you should here a click when it is in correctly.

If you have trouble, just keep trying and don't force it in. Trust me that it will fit if it is the right slot. Sometimes I get my SD card into my Wii or laptop in under a minute and sometime I have to mess with it for over 5 minutes (the angle of the stand for the Wii doesn't help at all).

Once you get the SD card in correctly, it will show up as a drive in "My Computer" but Windows XP and Vista have normal alerts with a "new hardware found" tone. Think of it as an USB flash drive that is smaller and goes into a specific slot.

When you are done, just push the SD card in and the slot should eject the card so you can pull it out.

Good luck and I hope you get it in.

Acer aspire 7004 flash card slot


Your computer doesn't support compact flash cards. Your SD slot is a 5-in-1 card reader, supporting Secure Digital (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick® (MS), Memory Stick PRO? (MS PRO), xD-Picture Card? (xD). The big slot is for PCMCIA devices.
