Re: acer aspire 4720

If i had known the manufacturer and the type of your card reader, i would have started with finding the drivers for the device. Is there any light on the device when plugged in the notebook.

But you better try this......................

  • check the cable that connects your notebook and the card reader, replace it with a new one.
  • try to uninstall the device in the control panel and restart your computer
  • if the above fails, visit the mfg's site for the drivers
  • and if all these fail, i assume the device to be dead.
try, and let me know.

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.

Who can show me how to upgrade ram for aspire 4720

On the bottom of the laptop your going to see a very big door that has about 6-10 screws holding it into place.

take out all of the screws and then the door should come off. Your going to see two slots and either one or both slots will have memory sticks in them depending on your configuruation.

To insert the 1GB of stick into the slot you need to align the slot on the bottom of the memory stick with the nudge on the slot. The memory can only go in one way. If both slots are taken up with memory then you need to take one of the memory sticks out and to do that just move the spring loaded latches away from each other and the memory will come out.

If you need further help then let me know.
