I've had the same problem, and discovered that it's the same failure as other people have reported with external USB devices. (This memory stick reader is essentially an internal USB device). The solution is to shut down the computer, and to remove AC power from the computer for 15-30 seconds (i.e. unplug it). Then reconnect power, and restart the computer. This has worked for me 3-4 times I've had this problem. I think the true problem is that there is something wrong with the USB driver, but this has worked for me every time. The key is that a reboot of the computer is not sufficient, it is important to remove power.

Well i am a software engineer. As far as i can analyse, i dont think this is good laptop.I think you should go for Dell Inspiron E1505. It provides all the features like Wi-Fi,Card Reader, Very Good graphics,quite reasonable prices, Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 Dual Core Mobile Processor,1GB PC2-4200 DDR2 Memory.
I think you should go for Dell Inspiron E1505 and moreover Dell is famous for its relaibility and customer satisfaction.
I suggest going into the control panel/device manager and removing all the usb devices. Restart the computer and let it find the devices again. That might help. Also--have you tried the stick in another computer just to make sure it works?
You installed the driver for your card reader for the laptop. If its not recognizing any cards you put in there then that means the reader is bad and since that is integrated onto the motherboard, replacing the motherboard would be the only option in order to fix that problem.
The sensitivity on the Touchpad may be too light. Go into Control Panel and click on Touchpad/keyboard to reduce the sensivity level. Also, you can also look at the settings in the Mouse Icon while you are in Control Panel again to check the sensitivity.
Try a memory manufacturer website & plug in your computer:
PNY Part Number
Retail Part Number
OEM Part Number
HD 'memory' is considered secondary or storage. In <Control Panel>::<Add / Remove Programs>, it should give you some indication of the size of the programs, as will hovering the mouse over the folder in which the program is situated [not as reliable as it once was as many dlls are stored in windows folders].
