    Ok tried that, seems the stick is all the way in the slot. Opened the back to try to look for a release clip and found none. Can't find a release like you do with cd/dvd drives that you can take a paperclip to and push the cd/dvd out. This is a 5in1 slot and I don't see how to get the stick out. Appears to be gold connectors on the bottom of the slot and the flip door on the top with a slight bit of room on each side. But don't see a way to grab the stick or what to push it out with. Open to any other suggestions or more details to look for quick release either on the slot or inside the notebook itself. Thank you for yuor help and suggestion.

Turn OFF the laptop and remove the battery. Try using a Paperclip or if you dare, open the laptop and you can get the memory card easier that way.

    what is your OS right now? Were you able to burn the recovery DVD just in case you might need them later?

    if you can back track and try to remember what was the last thing you did before the OS messup?

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.

Where do i install the camera memory card into my laptop


According to the manufacture web site that model has a - • 4-in-1 Bridge Media Adapter,with Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Memory Stick™, Memory Stick PRO™, Multi Media Card™ [shared slots]
So basically you need to look for just one slot, and you have to use one of those memory formats, If your using something else then it wouldn't work, You'll need a USB adapter that will read your type of media, The slot looks like its on the front edge of the laptop. It'll be a pretty small slot across the front, about where your left thumb would be. Its possible you have a model that didnt have one. The Bridge Media Adapter slot (available on certain models) supports the use of Memory Stick,, Memory Stick™ PRO, Secure Digital™ (SD™), MMC™ (MultiMediaCard™), or xD-Picture Card™ media. These media can be used with a variety of digital products: digital music players, cellular phones, PDAs, digital cameras, digital video camcorders, etc.
Lots of good info and owners manual at. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2221250&rpn=PSLB8U&modelFilter=L300-ST3502&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663
hopefully you can just click on all that,,,,,,

Memory module


There is a cover on the bottom of the machine that the memory is under. If there is only one slot under this cover, then the other slot will be under the keyboard. There are two memory slots on this machine, and it will hold up to 4g of memory.
