Hi,

I've just installed Windows 7 in my Toshiba Satellite 2450-401, and I have the Base System Device driver problem - my sd card slot is not working... Is there any way to solve this problem?

Best regards

Answer:Windows 7 and Satellite 2450-401 - SD card slot is not working

I don't see any problem there. You have old and not Win7 supported notebook.
What you do is nothing but ?experiment? to see how newest OS runs on old notebook model and you probably know that some hardware or Toshiba function will not work because of missing drivers, tools or utilities.

Anyway, on this forum I found thread about Win7 installation on old Satellite Pro M30.
Check it under http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=50572

There you can read how the guy solved issue with SD card slot.

Hi,

I've tried to install Windows 7 rtm downloaded from MSDN. Once I've installed it, my Satellite Pro A200 works fine, but the built in SD card slot not work, nothing happens when I insert a SD card, it does not come recognized.
Someone of you can help me?

Thanks a lot.

Pls. Excuse for my English..

Answer:Satellite Pro A200 - SD card slot not working on Windows 7

Hi

Have you installed a driver for SD card slot?
Ok you will not find a Windows 7 driver as yet but the most Vista drivers are also work on Windows 7.

Normally you need a driver for SD card slot so can you notice yellow exclamation marks in device manager?

What types of SD cards do you try? In the user manual you can find a list of supported SD cards.

I've seen this problem reported for other Dell machines for a year now, since Windows 10 came out, but not for my model.
Since installing Windows 10, I can't use my SD card slot to write to, format, etc. a microSD card with adaptor. I can see the drive, read the card, and transfer files from it, but when I try to write I get an error message that the disk is write protected. It isn't. The exact same cards and adaptors work fine in my son's computer, and the cards work fine in my phone.
I just updated all my drivers and it still isn't working. When will Dell finally provide a fix for this? I can't even find any indication that they're working on it.

Okay, I did something really stupid. It was late, I was in the dark, and I wasn't paying attention (obviously) so here's what happened...

I had a SanDisk 2GB Micro SD Memory Card that I was using in my cell phone.
I wanted to transfer some pics & photos from my computer to the phone, so I decided to stick it in the Express Card slot of my laptop. Simple enough, right?

....Well being the incredibly smart person that I am, I put the micro memory card in the adapter, but it was the wrong one. So my computer pretty much swallowed it whole. I can't get it back out.
Now I can't use the Express Card slot in my computer AT ALL, because the old one is still stuck in there. You can't really see it, but if you try to put another adapter in there, it won't "click". It won't go all the way because ... the old one I lost is still in there waiting to be rescued, haha.

So my question is: How do I get the memory card out of my computer??

I tried taking it apart, but I couldn't get the part of where the express card slot is, so that was no good. There's a way to do this, I know. I'm just not smart enough to figure it out on my own. Which is probably a good thing, because I might mess it up again, lol.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7416 laptop.
Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

-Ashley

Put a card in it and:

Look in Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager

Expand the "Universal Serial Bus controllers" and see if a USB mass storage device is listed.

I recently bought a digital camera and the Fujufilm 256 Digital Memrory card (SD card) does not fit the slot in my computer. The computer is Dell Dimension 5150C, bought this year.Dell at the call centre did not understand the query, and Dell at the email site says that maybe the card is not compatible. The card is a stabdard one on sale throughout the UK.Could the slot unit be faulty? How can I prove it is so? Any advice welcomed.Many thanks

Answer:SD memory card doesn't fit slot

A Secure Digital (or MMC) memory card has a cut off in one corner and you have to be careful it is inserted the correct way.However, also make sure that you are using the correct slot of the four available (according to the specs).

Why won't it boot with the module in slot B?

Hi

Can you please tell us which notebook model do you have and which RAM module you have bought?
You must understand that on this virtual way it is not easy to say much about your issue.
Fact is that modules for upgrade must be compatible with hardware platform of your notebook.

This forum is full of different but similar reports where people have such problems.
Mostly the problem was RAM itself. Looking for cheap solution people buy some no-name product and not high quality products. The "Value" RAM Modules use a lot of cheap chips utilizing multiple banks/channels, which can cause compatibility problems with some Chipsets/CPU's.

Hello, I have an A31p with two 512mb cards  (one in each slot) but it only shows 512mb total memory.I've tried swapping the cards between slots 0 and 1, and also tried removing the slot 1 card, and always end up with 512mb.I've run the PC doctor utility that comes on the laptop, but I haven't found much more info there.I assume this means there is a hardware problem with slot 1.  Any ideas of how to fix this?If there is no way to fix this, can I use a 1gb card in slot 0? Thanks in advance...

Answer:A31p only detecting one memory slot - is 1gb card ...

Welcome to the forum! One RAM slot going bad is a faily common problem on ThinkPads of that generation, the most affected one being T30, but I've seen it on A31/p, X30 and T23 as well...now, to the answers: a) You can install 1Gb DIMM in your A31p. Mine all have 2x1Gb and work great. b) You can also try putting additional pressure by applying a thin piece of paper between the DIMM and the slot itself, or putting a post-it or two between the cover and the slot. c) There are companies which do this type of motherboard repair, I  have heard good reviews about hammershead tech. Hope this helps.

Do they make any adapters that would allow a USB drive to plug into one of the many memory card slots on the front? (MS, CF, etc.)

Thanks.

Answer:USB to Memory Card Slot Adapter for Printer Available?

Highly doubt it, as the ones that are the opposite have a controller of some sort built in to change the data so USB can read it.

Hi everyone,

6 Months ago I switched on my desktop PC after a long aircooled night, noticed that my case fans (actually two of them) are running extremely fast and the PC keeps rebooting before reaching the OS screen. I looked into the pc and was shocked! the PC was just sinking in water! Yes, you read that right! I was turning-on my PC multiple times while ALL the parts were covered in water (motherboard surface, all expansion cards surfaces, hard disks ... everything!). Condensed humidity was transformed by the air conditioner into a complete water shower! I unplugged the PC and dried it out using an air blower and let it dry near the window for about an hour, then turned it on again, and YES! everything was working fine! felt very happy as I survived the catastrophe, and returned back to the normal daily use of the PC, but of course without using ANY air cooling in that room again!

2 Weeks ago, I got a defect in my motherboard: one memory slot is malfunctioning (the PC never boots with that slot occupied). I emptied that slot and currently using the other 3 slots only, and resumed using the PC.

1 Week ago, my expensive graphic card suddenly died (GeForce GTX Titan).

I am now confused! Are these defects directly related to the water sink that happened 6 months ago (delayed effect?), or it is just a coincidence?

ok, so im at a hotel internet cafe in brazil, and i notice that below the normal floppy drive (external 3.5"i assume) there is another slot, which is occupied by a memory stick reader. this reader services Memory Stick Duos, something called CF, SD cards, and something called SM, 4 cards in total, with a button on the other side of the CF one.

i plug m memory stick duo adapter in with my Memory Stick Pro Duo inside, and i cant find it on my computer. there is a light that is labeled as "Access" on the top, and it doesnt blink when i plug it in.

any idea on whats wrong, and if this could be a software fix? i could change that on this computer if needed.

also, anyone know how to change the language on a Windows XP Professional computer? its in spanish and i will operate better in english

I have a Toshiba A135 S7404 running Windows Vista Home Basic, the max memory upgrade is 2X2GB which I purchased via newegg.com and installed. When I turned it on, black screen and no boot up. Basically it will only reconize one 2GB of memory, doesn't matter what slot as long as it is only one. I tested both memory chips both work in the computer and in either card slot, just not both chips in both card slots. What the heck?????? Even stumped the Geek Squad guy at Best Buy, he seemed to think it the mother board issue. It runs much better on the 2GB then it did with the 512MB, cha. Computer should be able to run both 2GB card in each slot and reconize about 3.25 to 3.65 of the memory, if it would run both cards at the same time. ** I did upgrade the BIOS from 1.6 to 1.9 as most of the blogs suggested-still won't recognize the 2nd 2GB card.

you might have to wait a little bit.

Sometimes, when I connect my camera to my computer it takes about 30 seconds for it to read it and pop up. Especially if I have the whole thing packed with RAW's.

Try connecting your camera to your computer instead of using a card reader.

Hi there,

I need some help.

I recently upgraded my P100-MA6 to Vista Home Premium 64-bit and everything is running perfect and I have located software, drivers, and such for every component except the built-in SD memory card slot!
It will not work at all and I can't seem to find a driver or controller that I need for it to run/recognize my SD cards.

Can anyone point me to the proper driver for this component to run under Vista 64-bit O/S?

Is there one?
If not, can someone let me know that this is an issue that has no solution?

I know it seems odd, its the last thing I need to do for a completely perfect upgrade!

Specs on the laptop are:

Intel Core2 T7200 2.0ghz, 4GB pc-5400 OCZ ram, 200GB HDD, Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 gpu, Vista 64-bit O/S,

If you need any other specs just ask!

Thank you in advance to whoever reads this and may be able to assist me!

Regards,

Paul

Answer:Re: Satellite P100-MA6 - Need driver for SD Memory Card Slot using Vista 64

Go into Device Manager and look in the Properties of the Unknown Device, click on the "Details" Tab, and look at the Hardware ID's.

Then use this website to identify the device and locate the drivers:
http://www.pcidatabase.com/

You may need to use drivers found in google if you cant find the Vista64 driver from other Toshiba models.

So in February I ordered my kid an inspiron 11 as first computer. Later I decided to upgrade the memory and I called Dell and provided my service Tag. Dell told me it had a 2GB memory card and I could upgrade to a 4GB card. I ordered the card and disassembled my computer to find there is no slot to upgrade. After an hour on the phone I find out that what I am looking at is one with a fixed memory module. I told them that per my service tag it is supposed to have a slot and be upgradeable. They told me there is nothing they can do.
So I say how bout you exchange this for one that has what I ordered. They say since its over the 30 days there is no way to return or exchange. I said even though its your fault ???
Am I being unreasonable ? All I want is what I ordered. After a few more calls to India One person finally tells me there is a first and second generation of this laptop. Ist gen has the fixed and the second has the replaceable. So I tell them that per  Dell tag  this is supposed to be 2nd generation and therefor it was built wrong. They again say " we have a 30 day no Hassel return " and your over that.
Any suggestions folks ? I'm sick of beating my head against the wall with these people

I was wondering as I've got 2 spare slot Mini PCI-Express free on my laptop, if such Intel Card (ITM) could fit inside...This technology is quite not expensive actually.

The mini PCI-E is very ease to access under my keyboard and it just have to be inserted, and at system reboot, Windows7 will recognize straight that card and the proper Intel Turbo drivers.

It does act like "Windows ReadyBoost" & "Windows ReadyDrive" under 7 and Vista...so the system will load faster....boost the disk cache, load faster Apps & perform battery improvement.

Work on "Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset familly" & "Mobile Intel 4 Express Chip Familly".

-1 gb (RD, RB, no software pinning),
-2gb (RD, RB, no software pinning),
-4gb (RD, no RB, software pinning).

Any experience in return? or it is just like inserting a SD Card in the Card Reader to Ready Boost?

Hey,

I really need some help with how to remove my Memory Stick Pro DUO from the card slot.

The laptop has read the stick fine and I can see all the files in it however I can't seem to get it out. I've tried to push it in a bit to make it pop out but this doesn't work and it's also quite far in so I can't pull it out.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Hi

In my knowledge there is no additional help for Memory Stick Pro DUO removing like on the PCMCIA slot.
You should try to pull it out. If you don?t manage to pull it out with you fingers you could use a pair of tweezers.

Hello everybody.

Since sending a motherboard in for rma is both money-sink (need to ship it to them, a replacement unit and to reinstall windows) and an excruciating wait (weeks? months?) I'd like to try absolutely everything I can before I do.

Two months ago everything was working fine, then I had to take everything to another room to paint the walls in my room. Start getting "display drivers stopped working" as I plug the unit back, this over the span of three days. Case was cleaned last month, I decide to take out gpu and clean some more. Turn outlet and psu off, as soon as I start unscrewing the dvi cable I can feel static. Unplug psu, discharge power with the case button, take 6870 out and remove that little dust there was, put it back: gpu is powered up, fan spins, permanent black screen at boot, no video signal. Take it off, hook the thing to onboard gfx: everything works fine. Try back with 6870, black screen. Go get PSU tested, it apparently works (they didn't give me a full report on load). Go back, test mobo with three different older ati (pre-amd) cards, 3x black screen. Checked bios to make sure, main adapter was on pci-e.

I had other stuff to do so I put the issue to rest for a few days while I had one of the ati cards (2600 xt) double-checked by a store. As it turns out, the 2600 xt works alright, so I decided to take the plunge and go with a z77-a motherboard to replace the asrock (very cheap and couldn't even overclock so). After ... Read more

Answer:Card not working in first PCI-E slot

Are you cleaning out all the old drivers before switching all these cards? that can cause a card not to work right. But the reason you are switching to on board is because the bios does not detect the card. These motherboards- if they detect a card in a pcie X16 slot automatically disable on board graphics. So, it seems if you are switching to on board, it means BIOS isn't detecting the card is installed.

This is a used Toshiba laptop I got a month ago. The previous owner said he never used the SD card slot. I know why, because it's not working. When I slide any SD card in, the light comes on for 1 second and then comes off. The card is not recognized. Needless to say, I know the cards are good because they work everywhere else, including a USB card reader I have.

I checked Device manager and I don't see a problem. I believe the SD card reader is the "USB Mass Storage Device"?

I ran troubleshooting and it found that there is a problem with PnP devices and an "unknown device doesn't have a driver". It didn't find a solution or the driver.

I went to the Toshiba site and downloaded a couple of card reader driver versions.
Can someone please tell me the sequence, I uninstall, reboot, install new driver?

Thanks!

Answer:SD card slot not working.

There is a program called AIDA that you can download from here:

EVEREST Ultimate Edition - PC Diagnostics | Lavalys.com

Run it and under Windows Devices look for unknown devices. Click on the unknown device and it will tell you what the device is, probably the SD Card reader. Download the drivers for it from Toshiba and install.

I purchased a new Blu Windows phone and put in the SIM card from my old phone (carrier: Petro Canada (Rogers network); it does not work in slot 1, but it works in slot 2. The problem is that when sending a text message I have to keep changing to 2 before it will send. It also affects how numbers are stored. When I select Sim 1 it says No Sim. thank you.

Answer:Why isn't my sim card slot 1 working?

Well I get where it says there's no sim in sim 1 when there's no sim in sim 1. So far makes sense.
But if the same card works in slot 2 and not in 1 I suspect trouble be brewin' in yer phones hard wares. Basically it's most likely a hardware fault and I suggest seeing if you can test it with another sim card. If that doesn't work, return device for repairs.

This is my first post here, so be gentle on me

Since the symptoms of my problem are so specific and easy to reproduce I figured I would find the answers easily.. But after a whole evening of searching on Google, I have found nothing which can help...

I have just built my new PC using an Asus M4A78 motherboard and had surprisingly few problems.

However, today I found that I have a problem with "card readers".

I have a card reader in my printer, an internal 5 slot one (which connects directly to a USB header on the Motherboard), and I also have several external ones.

What I have found is this.

1. If I connect the Card Reader to the PC when its up and running and it works (it doesn't matter if there is a card in the slot or not).. I get the 'bing bong' noise.. The reader appears (I see the drive letter) and then when I insert a card, Windows 'mounts' it and I can view the files.

2. If I Reboot the PC whilst a reader is connected (and empty), when Windows boots I see the drive letters, but when I insert a card I get an 'egg timer' in Windows and double clicking on the card letter shows "Please Insert disk into drive X:"

3. If Boot the PC whilst a reader is connected AND there is a media card (SD, CF, etc) in the slot and it works normally.. The PC boots, the card is readable and significantly, if I can remove the card and reinsert it (or insert another card) and it mounts.

So the bottom line is tha... Read more

Answer:SD card slot not working - Satellite 2410-601

Hi

First of all you should check the device manager if the SD slot in installed properly.
If the yellow exclamation mark occurs in the device manger in the SD area so there is something wrong. Usually the driver is missing. In this case you have to install the SD host controller driver and SD memory card driver. These drivers you will find on the Toshiba website.

If the device was installed properly and the device manager doesn?t show any exclamation marks so you have to use a supported and compatible SD card.
Please check you user?s manual for supported SD cards.

Can you see the SD card in the disk management?

Do you have yellow marks in the device manager? Maybe you should also update the card reader driver. A newer version you can find on the Toshiba European website.

Furthermore you should test an other SD card. Maybe the card is faulty.

Go to Device Manager and check if the express card is installed properly, or if its reporting an error.

You should update the BIOS to the latest version. BIOS updates can sometimes fix problems like this.

And ensure you have XP Service Pack 2 or 3 installed.

So you could use 1x PCMCIA Type-II only and 1x ExpressCard.

Does it matter which PCI-E X16 slot you use? My board has 2 full X16 slots and I want to run my GTX590 lower down in the case to move it away from my soundcard.

Here's my board

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3449&dl=1#sp

Also does anyone have any experience running sound cards ect. in full size PCI-E X16 slots? they obviously don't engage the clips on the socket but do they still work?

I've never had reason to try either of these configurations and my computer is in pieces ATM while I'm upgrading it so I have no way to test for any problems but everything I've read on the subject so far says there shouldn't be any problems with either of afore mentioned configurations.

Thanks

I have a AMD 7870 Dual slot video card on my Asus M5A99X-Evo Motherboard. It is installed in the first 16x slot...and I also have a PCI-e 1x XF-I Titanium Sound card. The problem I am having is that one of the 1x slots is covered by the video card, and the 2nd one is open, but right smack below the Video card. My Video card is the Sapphire 7870 GHz Edition non OC.. Attached is a picture of what I am trying to explain. My other question is: Will this cause issues since one of the GPU fans is semi covered? Its it recommended? Last question: If I move this to one of the 8x slots below on my motherboard, will it cause my 16x PCI-E slot to slow down? Thanks ahead of time for any help you can provide.

Computer Specs -

Asus M5A99x-Evo Motherboard (AM3+)

Answer:Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (Realtek® ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

When I populate slot2 with 512mb noname ddr1 I cannot boot into windows, BIOS comes up ok and memory tests ok. This is intermittent but now almost 90% of the time it won't boot. slot1 contains a 1GB kingston pc3200.

With no ddr in slot2 it boots ok and with a 1GB stick (corsair) it boots ok. I guess it was the noname 512MB stick but seems strange it passed all the memory tests (from ubuntu grub loader)

MB is an Asus K8S-MX

Answer:Won't boot into windows with 2nd memory slot filled

hi what happens when you put the 512MB stick in slot 1 and the 1gb stick in slot 2? kinda surprised your running win7 64bit on just 1.5 gb of ram.

There's nothing in the bios for assigning PCIE GPU to a slot. (single 4870 1G)

I have 4 PCIE slots (CrossfireX board, ASUS M3A32 MVP Deluxe MoBo, w/ 790FXNB.) I did some case clean up and wire management yesterday and I moved my card to slot 1 instead of 2... Didn't get a display after the POST and OS Boot, so I moved it back to slot 2, un-installed the drivers for the card, then moved it back to slot 1... Same problem.. I'm getting tired of messing with these cards..

No display after POST and OS Boot... CMOS Reset?? I have a PCIE Config in the BIOS, but nothing to assign a primary.

Ideas??

hi there,
i need to know which know which graphic card will fit for my computer. Ie i want to know which type: DDR ,DDR1 or ddr2 i bought my computer in 2007, but thats not enough to tell.
so please let me know how do i know which pci slot i have?
 

Answer:which graphic card slot do i require for my PCI slot

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

They shouldn't make it so easy to refomat your SD card while it's in the camera but it happened. It's a Canon Powershot SD1100 IS.

Now, I know all about recovering things that are lost but I seem to have run into a bit of a roadbump here. The SD card does not show up when I plug it into my card reader. Okay fine, so I decided to put the card back into the camera and plug it in VIA USB to run Recuva on it via that way - sadly the only thing that shows up is "Portable Media Device" and Recuva can't see that because it doesn't have a drive letter assigned to it, BUT it doesn't show up in Disk Management EITHER.

Now, the SD slot works with my SDHC 8GB card just fine, works fine with my MicroSD adapter with my 2GB microSD card, but for some reason since this card was formatted in the camera it just doesn't want to show up under the explorer at all.. Anyone have any ideas on how to 1. Get this card to show up in explorer and then 2. Get all my pictures back?

My brand new Edge 11 (2545-3RG) that supports Max 2x2GB=4GB RAM was delivered with 2GB RAM in SLOT-0 (FRU 55Y3716, 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3-1333, which is the default, according to the hardware maintenance manual and the information on Lenovo Support site).In order to upgrade to 4GB Dual channel, I put an identical second 2GB stick (also FRU 55Y3716) in SLOT-1.The following happened:-  BIOS recognizes that 4096MB are installed.-  Win 7 x64 reports in System Properties that "Installed memory (RAM): 4GB (1.75GB usable)".The size of the usable RAM, 1.75GB is 2GB in SLOT-0 minus 256MB allocated for the graphics.- Windows applications can only "see" and use 1.75GB - Special utilities, such as Speccy, do "see" both modules.Speccy reports Total Memory Size as 4096MB. It is also supposed to display some detailed information about the memory in both slots. The information about the memory in SLOT-0 (here called Slot #1) contains, as expected, all details about Manufacturer, Part number, Serial number etc. However, the detailed information about the memory in SLOT-1 (here called Slot #2) is missing! Not even frequency in Max Bandwidth field is displayed!The bottom line is that the memory in the second slot (SLOT-1) is unusable. To avoid speculations, there is 100% guarantee that all memory sticks are in full working order. Has anyone else had this problem? skylark 

Answer:Edge 11 memory upgrade failure - 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3-1333 memory in the second slot is unusable

I have experimented a lot and found a temporary workaround.If  you keep the original 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3-1333Mhz in SLOT-0 and put instead 2GB PC3-8500 DDR3-1066Mhz  in SLOT-1, suddenly the second stick is correctly recognized everywhere, and everything works as it should.As a curiosity, the opposite doesn't work at all and the laptop won't even boot!Even if this workaround does work, the core issue still remains.Lenovo, please provide a response to this hardware issue! skylark

I have just installed Windows Vista RC1 which has just been released

Pretty much everything works except the Secure Digital Memory card slot.

Before I installed Vista I ran the compatibility wizard and it mentioned a few things which may not work but the one which stood out was "SD Memory Card Format Utility"

I assume this is why the memory card slot doesn't work?

Does anyone know how to get it working?? Its not the end of the world because I can use the docking station but its handy having it just working straight off.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Answer:SD card slot doesn't work on Windows Vista

Possibly the new OS ?Vista? doesn?t include the compatible driver for the SD card controller.
At this time the Vista is not supported by Toshiba because this OS is not official on the market.

If you can?t find a Windows 7 driver, you can try the Vista one. It should also work.

Hello  At work my colleagues and I use a Think T470S , Model-No 20HF-003NMZ. There is a SIM card slot at the side of these notebooks, so I put in a SIM card from a Swiss provider. However, with or without a SIM, I don't see any LTE/WWAN devices in Windows listet on at least two f our T470s. So my question is, does the T470S support LTE/WWAN access? I mean, there is the SIM card slot, but as I can see from the Lenovo's shop configurator, some models do have a WWAN ready option. Does this mean I have to buy an accessory to get the WWAN working? Or is it a configuration / driver problem? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Radiofloyd

Answer:T470S No LTE / WWAN adapter in Windows although SIM card slot exists.

Hi Radiofloyd,Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.
 
Looking at your system configuration this model is WWAN ready but in order to use this feature, you need to add WWAN card to it.  
 
I hope the above information helped you.

I am looking for support regarding my S21e-20 - after upgrading to Windows 10, I cannot use my MicroSD reader... I've tried installing most of the drivers available on the support pages (http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-s-series-laptops/s21e-20/280m4?... but it does not solve the problem. The device manager keeps showsing missing drivers for a "PCI Device" - since I did not discover any of the other devices to misbehave, I assume that the missing drivers are exactly the drivers for the MicroSD slot. Could you, please, provide me a link to the driver which is responsible for the proper functioning of the MicroSD card slot. Just for your information: the unrecognized device in the Device Manager has the following "Physical Device Object Name": \Device\NTPNP_PCI0010 and the "Device Instant Path" is the following: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_5229&SUBSYS_380517AA&REV_01\4&9763F65&0&00E1 .Am I right in assuming that it's the MicroSD slot? Thank you in advance for your help.

I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre, purchased only four weeks ago.  It product family is IdeaCentre k410, machine type 10089.  Anyhow, the problem is: I inserted a microSD / microSDHC, both of which seem to fit into the slot fine, though neither registers under anywhere in windows explorer, neither in the root of C://, nor in any of the subdirectories, or on the main listing of mounted file systems.  I used the Lenovo Driver Updater and re-installed the SD Card Reader driver, to no avail.  Any help would greatly be appreciated.  As well, the computer runs Windows 8, which has some features I'm unhappy with, and although this is not a windows forum and I don't mean to create a thread that deviates from lenovo-specific topics, I was wondering if there is anything in either the machine architecture or the software of Windows 8 that could hinder m in installing a dual-boot system so that I might have the option of running a variant of linux as a sub-operating system, as I did with windows XP.?????  OK any help at all would be so greatly appreciated, thank in advance.  I really want to be able to retrieve some writing files I have stored in that micro SDHC card.  As another aside, does anyone know the max limit of RAM this computer can take and if it is DDR or some other type?

Answer:SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC/MS/MS Pro card-reader slot not showing up in windows explorer.

hi BrokenHalo,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Regarding your questions:
1. When you inserted the SD card, do you hear a sound that a device is inserted and under Device Manger, do you see a Card Reader?
 
If not, try to:
a. boot intto the BIOS by pressing F1, load defaults by pressing F9 then press F10 to save and exit BIOS.
b. Reseat the front panel connectors (see page 23 of the hardware maintenance manual)
 
2. To install linux (i.e. Ubuntu), see if you can install Ubuntu via UEFI. If you're unable to do so or if you want to install other OS, try to:
a. Boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 and set the following settings below 
 
UEFI Boot Mode = Legacy
Secure Boot = Disabled  (if applicable)
CSM = Disabled /  Legacy or Other OS (if applicable)
OS Optimized Default = Disabled or Legacy (if applicable)
 
b. When finished, press F10 to save and exit BIOS then try to install Ubuntu via Wubi or insert your Windows installation disc to install a different OS.
 
3. As per this pdf data sheet, the Lenovo K410 has a max RAM of 8GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3  but Crucial reports that this unit can take up to 16GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 - check this site.
 
 
Hope this helps

Hi All, Just updated to Windows 8.1 64 bit from Windows 8. The Cardbus slot speed/bandwidth has dropped considerably to the point that it is now unusable since the update. It worked fine before, although I had a similar problem in the past which was cured by a BIOS update. Since the RICOH chip that controls this slot also control the Firewire and the SD Slot, I was wondering whether these are also affected? Does anyone else have the same issue? I expect it affects all computer with this chip: T61/X61/R61 etc etc. Would someone who is on Windows 7 64 bit or Windows 8.0 64 bit mind sending me the pci.sys and pcmcia.sys files so that I can try rolling the drivers back to a previous version? System details:Thinkpad X61 TabletCore 2 Duo 1.68GB RAM128GB SSDWindows 8.1 Many thanks.Shaun

My memory card reader does not read or downloads  SD cards. I have gone to the HJ site and I cannot find Windows 10 listed for updates for the pc as it only shows Windows 8.1 as the latest downloads for my pc. How do I get my memory card reader updated drivers in order that I can again download SD cards in the Memory Card reader?

Answer:Memory Card reader not working

Is THIS ONE your PC?  They have made some changes in the SD card, even though they look the same. HERE IS A DOCUMENT that might give some insight on troubleshooting.BTW: the specs for SD cards have changed and that might be the problem.  It might help for this discussion to give the info on the problem card.  An SD card - older style would be 2GB or less.  A SDHC card could be 4GB to 32GB and a SDXC could be 64GB to 2TB.  It should be identified in some manner.  The bad thing is the older card reader cannot read the newer type SD cards.  An easy and fairly inexpensive solution is to purchase an external - USB - card reader that is for all of these SD card types.

I bought Acer Aspire one 722 with windows 7 on 2011. Recently I updated to windows 10. I was trying to check my memory card in my laptop but I was not able to do that. the laptop didn't recognize it (it didn't show any message or error). it is like I didn't insert anything. So please do you have any idea how to fix the issue. I read that we have to instal driver from acer website. So i will appreciate if you can lead me step by step how to do that. Thanks

Answer:my memory card reader is not working

Sorry your having problems with your system on Win 10.. As I am sure you know not all hardware is able to be supported for all system and may be your issue. However I think it could be that you may want to download the Reader Driver for Win 8 and run that on your system.. Seeing you did the update from 7 it maybe that it don't have the 8 driver and if you install that it may work.... I know that my AO isn't supported in 10. even though I run 10 I know that not everthing is going to work the way it was working when it was bought to start with. Seeing that that was the Software it was designed to run....  I would get the Win 8 driver from here http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers/3658;-;AO722 and try that see if that makes it better....  Only other thing that could be done is sadly if that don't work. You could buy a USB Card reader and use that to access your cards...  Hope this helpsJames
