Re: memory card slot =/

Small cards should come with a template to make them bigger for that purpose, or you can purchase the templates.

Is the laptop new, if so take it back and see if the repair guy can remove it. Don't try yourself, you will void the waranty.

If it's not new and under waranty I would do the same anyway. You have spent a bit of money on this, so be careful. Laptops are delicate and don't stand up to poking and proding too much.

Take two dollar bill newest as you can and stick one corner on top of the memory card aon the other corner at the battom the hold both bills closer as you can to the memory an press the bills so they can grave the card and pull it out the reason why are you using bills is because they are not good electrical conduction so caution if you use any kind of metall you can damage the computer and memory

I just put a Sony memory card in the SD-MMC slot. it didn't work,,, but worst than that, it got stuck. I need to get the card back, what can I do?

Use small utensils, such as tweezers, bits of wire or a paperclip. If nothing you try works, you can remove the bottom of the laptop to get access to the interior of the slot. Hopefully this won't invalidate your warranty, if you have one.
Good luck.

Do all compaq presario cq60 have a memory slot?

It has a memory card slot (left-side towards the front), but your particular memory card might be too big for the slot. There are several different variations of memory cards out now. Of course the newer the variation, the smaller that card is. This laptop is fairly new so it might not be compatible with your memory card. Does your camera have a USB cable for transferring pictures? If so, then just use that.

The sd card is stuck in the slot and wont come out

You tried to put a Sony Memory Stick into an SD slot? It will probably need as much force to pull it out as it took to jam it in there!

I'd power off, and start with tweezers... if that doesn't work... i'd break out the needle-nose pliers. You may break the reader while trying this... but a card reader is all of $10-20... and you're kinda stuck anyway. ;o)

No problem

I can't find any decent photos of your laptop online so I can't see what you're seeing, but it may be one of several things:

1) A PCMCIA or Express Card slot - this is a flat, long slot that usually has a dummy plastic "card" in it. You put wifi, network, sound, modem, video capture etc. cards in here

2) A smartcard reader - often located just under an express card slot - is a very thin slot where you put a business-card like ID card which can authenticate you, like a fingerprint. When you take it out your computer locks automatically. These are a defunct security standard usually on business laptops, not used much anymore but it's so small that a lot of laptops come with them anyway. In fact it's easy to not even realize it's there.

3) A proprietary expansion slot - HP in particular are known for putting special "expansion ports" just for HP devices. Perhaps this laptop is the same.

I'd bet it's probably #1.
