I have an Acer aspire 5630 notebook. has ENE card reader. but it doesn't recognize sdhc flash

I am not sure but I don't think this budget end laptop supports SDHC flash. Check your manual for confirmation and please correct me if I am wrong.
Acer's Aspire 5630 has an identity crisis. Although marketed as a multimedia machine, this $999.99 laptop offers some business-oriented features. Yet it's only available as a budget, preconfigured model through retail channels. Despite this confusion, the Aspire 5630 should meet the computing needs of most users, but by trying to offer a little bit of everything, this mainstream laptop excels at nothing.
At 6.2 pounds, the silver-and-black Aspire 5630 is a typical midsize notebook-too large to carry on your daily commute, but spacious enough to work on for long periods. While the notebook's keyboard and touch pad are just passable in quality (if a bit stiff), its 15.4-inch wide-screen LCD is a cut above your usual budget laptop's. With a 1,280x800 native resolution, the screen displays bright, sharp images, and DVD playback was smooth in our tests. A few cool Acer software utilities-such as GridVista, which divides the screen into two, three, or four windows, so you can easily work in multiple applications simultaneously-add to the panel's appeal.
As for multimedia features, you'll find application-shortcut keys and media-control buttons above and alongside the keyboard. Acer also includes a Windows Media Center-like multimedia suite called Arcade Deluxe. But despite what the company's marketing materials suggest, the Aspire 5630 isn't a multimedia workhorse. While higher-end systems in the Aspire line accommodate a discrete nVidia GeForce Go 7300 video card, the PC features Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics, which labor under the weight of all but the most basic gaming titles and graphics tasks. And since the laptop is a preconfigured model with no upgrade path, gamers and digital artists should certainly shop elsewhere.
Business users, on the other hand, may find a few things to appreciate, most notably the proprietary Acer Empowering Technology (AET) utility bar that sits on the notebook's desktop. With its simple, intuitive interface, AET is a convenient center for a number of tasks that business users will be glad to have at their fingertips, including password protection, network management, and power usage, as well as display parameters for giving presentations.
One quibble we have has to do with Acer's half-baked nod to 3G, an emerging technology that allows business users to access the Internet over a high-speed digital cellular network. A dedicated toggle switch on the front of the notebook seemingly controls both Bluetooth and 3G connectivity, but since the Aspire includes the components for neither technology, the switch is redundant. Do you have a light switch in your house that doesn't seem to control anything? Annoying, right? Now imagine a cool-looking switch on the front of your notebook that doesn't do anything, either. Plus, since the Aspire 5630 is a fixed-configuration notebook, you don't have the option to add 3G or Bluetooth later. The notebook does include 802.11a/b/g wireless connectivity, and you also get a standard selection of ports and connections, but FireWire is noticeably absent.

Acer aspire 5630 BL50

You can try basic troubleshooting. Unplug the laptop, takeout the battery. With the laptop still unplugged, put the battery back in and power-on the laptop. If that doesn't work and you hear no beeping sounds, the motherboard maybe bad and needs replacing.
