ACER T690 "where does the sd card reader cable attach to the motherboard?


Motherboard installed in computer case, look at the bottom edge of the motherboard.

Now I need your eyes

Underneath that long white PCI slot at the Bottom, (There are 2),
is a Purple rectangular header. Two rows of pins.

To the right is another rectangular header, but this time in Blue.
Look below them on the motherboard. Towards the outside edge of the motherboard. Do you see USB next to either of them?

The Card Reader just attaches to a USB header. The rectangular header actually supports TWO USB ports.

This is why one of those headers may have two USB cables hooked to it, and go to two separate USB ports on the Front Panel of the computer.

The other USB header would be for the Card Reader.

Looking even more to the right, there are two Yellow headers, that I'm SURE are USB headers. Looks like one long header, but it isn't.

I COULD be mistaken about the Purple header, or Blue header.
One might be for IR Remote.

At any rate, again, I need your eyes. What is silkscreened on the motherboard, under those headers? Purple, Blue, and Yellow?

Unless just one plug connector, is unplugged from one of those headers. (Two cables go to Card Reader, and end in one plug connector, that plugs into the motherboard)
Then you would know by the process of simple elimination.

Note how in the two rows of pins, there is one missing in the corner.
5 pins on one side, 4 pins on the other side.
The missing pin is the KEY. That is how you orient the plug connector.

Front usb ports and card readers don't work is this a driver problem? please help with drivers presario SR5050


Not an driver problem. Your front USB ports cable not connected with motherboard. Connect the cable in USB jack in the motherboard. Some time no cable inside the cabinet, in case buy new cable and connect it.

Is there a way to attach mutimedia card reader to gateway micro atx motherboard


I'm not sure which model number you have, but you are able and have USB ports on your computer, then the answer is yes. You can do it two ways: One way (simplest way) is to buy an external multi-reader that plugs into a USB port. The second (More permanent), is when you open up your case and look at your motherboard, you should see a white cable that is connecting to your front-mounted USB ports. Follow it back to the motherboard and see if you have another slot to put another cable in for you multi-reader (and make sure you have a spot available in the front of your case to put the multi-reader). If you don't have a spot, or another plug, then go to newegg.com and buy an internal reader with at least one or two USB ports, and replace your existing front USB port.

Tower will not boot or communicate with monitor


Don't throw out that computer or replace any components just yet.

After much trial-and-error, I finally figured out the solution for this common issue with certain HP Pavillion models. It turns out to be a design flaw with the front-panel memory card reader. Somehow the card reader's firmware gets scrambled, and it prevents the computer from booting. You can test this on your machine by temporarily disconnecting the card reader cable at the motherboard header. Voila - I'll bet you $1 that your computer will now boot!

The solution is buried deep inside this HP tech support document. The card reader firmware needs to be reset.

Here\'s how to fix it once and for all:

1) With the computer power unplugged (duh), open up the case & disconnect the card reader cable at the card reader itself - NOT the end that connects to the motherboard header. Make sure the cable end is not touching any metal components before proceeding to step 2 (another duh).

2) With the cable still disconnected, fire up the computer. The tech support doc says to let it boot into Windows and stay there for about 5 minutes.

3) Shut the computer down and reconnect the cable to the card reader.

4) Turn your computer back on - your memory card reader will work and, most importantly, the computer will no longer hang at POST!

I suspect that when you fire up the computer without the cable connected, the card reader is designed to reset its firmware by grounding out through the case - sort of like a CMOS Reset jumper on a motherboard.

I hope this solution is helpful to others.

best,
JohnB

Sd card reader doesnt seem to work


I had the same problem as you describe on my Medion P6611 laptop (and on a previous Medion desktop that was, sadly, stolen from my apartment in early December. But I digress...) I called Medion tech support (which I have never found to be anything less than excellent), and the representative said:

The problem *may* be due to a buildup of static electricity, either on the card itself or in the card reader (I forget which it is). To fix it, do the following:

  • Tturn off your computer, remove the battery and unplug the AC power adapter from the laptop if it's also attached.
  • Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds or so. (This discharges the electricity from some internal component[s]--capacitors, perhaps?)
  • Replace the battery, reconnect the AC adapter (if you use it) and turn on the computer.
With any luck, that should fix your problem.

P.S. One slightly related tip: When you remove a card from the card reader, just remove it. There's no need to click on "Safely remove hardware" and select the card reader's drive letter. If you do, it won't recognize cards again until you reboot or turn the machine off and back on. Different problem, but same behavior.

There is a white cable fixed to the drive that appears to have


The 7 pin connector is for the media card readers and needs to be plugged into a USB header on your motherboard. Not all motherboards have this header, so consult your motherboard manual. You may have to connect it in place of front USB connectors on your PC case.

The card reader will work without a separate power connection. The power connection is for the floppy drive only, and IS required for the drive to work. You should be able to find the appropriate connector on your power supply.

you should connect it by the scheme VCC | Data - | Data + | Ground.
In most motherboards you have connector something like this

i`ve attached.

If you can, show please screenshots of your connector on card reader!
