My SDHC card won't read in my laptop card slot.

Question: My SDHC card won't read in my laptop card slot.

When I put my SDHC sandisk card in my laptop slot marked (SD/MMC-MS/PRO) it doesn't read it. My partner has a similar laptop with the same slot as mine and the SDHC card reads in hers perfectly. Any Ideas?

Portege R 500 does not read SDHC cards in the SD slot. Normal SD cards can be read without problems. Manual states, that SDHC cards can be read. in different forums it is stated, that SDHC cards up to 16 GB work without problems. I have already downloeded and installed the most recent version of SD utilities, unfortunately without success.

Answer:Portege R500: SDHC Card cannot be read in SD slot

Hi

I found out that you can use the 2GB SD cards and 8GB SDHC cards.

I don?t know why you are not able to use you SDHC card but I would recommend removing the SD slot from the device manager and after new reboot to reinstall the driver from the Toshiba European driver page.

But wait;
Did you use Windows XP?
If yes, did you install SP2 and this MS patch?

[Hotfix for Windows XP that adds support for SDHC cards that have a capacity of more than 4 GB|http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=934428]


Please check this firstly. Maybe it solves your issue!

Hi All,

The SanDisk ultra 16 GB class 10 card that I use with my camera was working fine with my Lenovo Z50-70 (OS - Win 10) laptop till last week. One fine day it stopped reading the card and since then I have not been able to read the card transfer any files or pictures. The card works fine with other windows 7 laptops and my laptop is able to read other camera SD cards. Am at a fix here and I am wondering what can be the cause for concern here. I have formatted my Lenovo laptop and have reinstalled windows and its drivers from the Lenovo support site which obviously didn?t help. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Answer:Unable to read SDHC card in windows 10 laptop

I have a Lenovo B575 and my Card Reader stopped working as well. I fixed it by downloading an updated Win 10 driver directly from Realtek; however, I would check for an updated Lenovo driver first (which you may already have done).

good luck,

I got an 8gb micro sdHC card filled up using the adapter, with music, which plays fine.

Before I received this cheap us>microSD adapter I asked the seller if it read HC cards. They said no. It's just a cheap chinese adapter on ebay so there isn't much info on it at all. It's write up didn't say anything about HC capabilities.

Like I mentioned, I was able to use it to load up an 8gb sdHC card.

Does this mean that it will probably also work with a 32gb sdHC card? Is there a size limit that the 8gb card didn't exceed?

If yes, I'd like to buy more now because I don't think these will hold up to much use.

Thanks
 

Answer:Can My Usb>microsd Adapter Read Sdhc If It Fills An 8gb Sdhc Card? Seller Says It Won't.

I found the same item elsewhere on ebay which mentions that it recognizes up to 32gb, which is what I needed.

So....I suppose there are quite a few adapters out there labelled only SD but will in fact read up to at least 32 SDHC cards.

I think going over 32gb cards might require additional capabilities.

Answer:Hp Envy 17 touchscreen SDHC Card reader do not read card in ...

@YoannFromParis, Hello and thanks for posting on the HP support forums.  When dealing with the issues from doing an update to Windows 10 there are a few things that may work to fix the issue. First thing to try is running the Windows Update Troubleshooter. The next step is to run the HP BIOS recovery to reload the BIOS to see if it will sync up with the operating system. HP Notebook PCs - Restoring the BIOS And if this fails to fix the problem, if you did the update to Windows 10 you can do the stand alone installation to see if it fixes any conflict. Download Windows 10 The other option is to roll back to the previous operating system until new updates get released by Microsoft and then uploaded on the HP support page for your notebook. Please let me know how things go.  Thanks again for posting and have a great day.

I had Vista installed on my Acer  5610z laptop and I was able to read my SDHC card, I now have XP and when i put in the SDHC card in the internal card raader nothing happens. I downloaded the drivers from Acer website for XP card reader and still nothing. I know the card reader is capable of reading the SDHC card, because it was working with Windows Vista. I tried everything and still nothing. Anyone have an idea or suggestion.

Answer:SDHC card reader will not read card in XP, but it did in Vista?? Any idea?

Maybe if you told us the make and model of your card reader and whether it is internal or external, instead of putting all your question in the title and just a sad smiley where the information should be, you might get an answer.

To further check the ricoh card reader i tried putting a 4GB SDHC card and it was able to read that, so I am assuming it is driver issue that I would like to be fixed since the card reader is advertized as SDXC compatible so it doesn't make sense for it not being able to read a 16 GB SDHC card.I have tried installing the latest driver for it from lenovo support site and windows said newest drivers are already installed.

my new laptop has an sd card slot which is very nice. how can i tell if it will accept the new high capacity sd format, which are going to handle up to 32gigs!i don't think it will but how can i tell for sure without buying one and trying it?thanks alldave

Answer:sdhc card slot

I don't think the slot makes any difference - an SD slot will read an SD Card no matter what capacity the card is. At least that is how I see it, if I am wrong I am sure someone will soon come on and say so!

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

Hello everyone,

I'm having trouble with my laptop. It's an ASUS laptop running on Windows 8.1. I've had this computer for about a year now and have had no trouble before with having it pick up whatever SD cards that I insert into the port. However, a few weeks ago, I noticed that it will no longer read SD cards at all. When I updated to Windows 8.1 about 3-4 days ago, nothing changed. Cards still will not be read. I've tried 4 different SD cards before and after I undated windows. I've also tested the SD cards on other computers to make sure that the cards themselves were not faulty. {Which they are not. They are perfectly fine on other computers.} I've snooped through Disk Management on my windows and the SD cards will not show up on the list.

I'm hoping to get some help with this problem. Thanks in advance.

Hi.

I recently upgraded my Windows Vista 32 into a Windows 7 Ultimate. I'm not very tech savvy so I can't tell you details unless informed on how to. It's a Toshiba Satellite

Sorry, back to the topic, I have an SDHC card, and it worked fine, but I left it alone for a month or so and now I've tried to use it, and it won't read, and now my computer keeps making the sound as if I have inserted the card or a usb device into the computer. DO you think an upgrade may have messed with my computer?

Answer:Windows 7 SDHC Card not being read.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Since the upgrade to windows 7 might have not find any drivers during the process, i'll suggest you to go on the manufacturer site, searching for your computer model and see if there's any.

PS: Be more detailled about your laptop model, there's plenty of Toshiba Satellite!

Hello,

I own a Toshiba laptop of Qosmio F-50-series.

As I connected a SANDISK SDHC-Card 4 GB to my laptop there was no reaction of recognizing the new media.
No new driveletter nothing.

Can you help me?

Yours Starmind/Thomas

Answer:Qosmio F50 cannot read the SDHC card 4 GB

Hi

The card reader supports the SD cards 8MB-2GB and SDHC cards 4GB-16GB.
Therefore your card should be recognized without any big troubles.

Did you insert it correctly?

Try also to remove the card reader from the device manager and then reboot the notebook. After the Windows has booted again, the card reader should be recognized as new device. Then try to insert the CDHC card again

Any ideas why the 4GB SDHC might not be recognized by my computer? Might it be too large for my old HP Pavillion a320n?
 

Answer:Computer will not read 4GB SDHC card

It might be. Quite a few things won't read the SDHC cards. I'd consider looking for a card reader, maybe one that fits in a drive bay (floppy or cd) if you don't want anything external.

Hi

First of all I have checked your user manual of Satellite P200 and it supports the following SD card types:
-SD up to 2GB
-SDHC: 4GB

Are you using such SD cards or with more capacity?

If you use such supported cards I would try updating the card reader driver. You can try the Flash Media Driver for Vista that you can get on the official Toshiba page.
Check this!!!

Answer:Unable to read my Sandisk Ultra SDHC 8GB camera card

Found the following on the Sandisk website.

Other options you can use to read files on your SDHC card
If your computer's card reader is not SDHC compatible, you have 3 options available:

1. You can connect your camera (or other device) that works with SDHC to your computer using a USB cable that came with the camera. You should be able to transfer files to the computer this way.

2. You can contact your computer manufacturer to see if they have a free firmware update for your model that will make it SDHC compatible

3. You can buy inexpensive SanDisk SDHC card readers that will connect to your computer's USB port. Click to expand...

Hey all.  I just bought a Thinkpad Advanced Dock for my T61 and it's pretty much replaced my old desktop system.  The only problem I'm having with it is that the card reader in the dock won't read SDHC cards.  It'll read SD cards fine, but doesn't do anything for SDHC cards.  My T61 will read SDHC cards, which I use as a readyboost drive, but I'd rather use the card reader built into the dock for it.  I've looked for updated drivers, but apparantly the dock doesn't have drivers, according to the Lenovo site's Drivers section.  Any help?   Now all I have to do is wait to get a video card to replace the crappy Intel x3100 in my T61...  Any recommendations on a better one than the one Lenovo recommends? I've heard good things about the PowerColor AX6570 and ATI Radeon HD 4670.  There are Youtube videos of it in an Advanced Dock, playing Crysis 2 at roughly 30fps.  Personally I'd lean more towards the Powercolor, but that's just me.  Thanks in advance. System Specs:Lenovo T61 6465-01U6GB RamWindows 7 Home Premium x64Thinkpad Advanced Dock Note: I hope this is the right section to post this.  I figured since it was T61 related, it might belong here.  Sorry if it doesn't.

Answer:Thinkpad Advanced Dock won't read SDHC cards? & Video Card Recommendation?

Hello,
 
If you have heard that the PowerColor AX6570 or the ATI Radeon HD 4670 works in the ThinkPad Advanced Dock, then I would recommend going with that, as finding a low-profile single-slot video card that fits into the dock and works in it may be difficult.
 
Given the era in which the ThinkPad Advanced Dock was designed, it may only support SD cards via the card reader.  I would  suggest attaching an SDHC card reader via one of the USB ports, or perhaps via the CardBus or ExpressCard ports, if those aren't being used.
 
Regards,

Lately, My laptop is very slow in recognizing my usb stick, or my Hard drive (usb 3.0) or my sxs cards through my express card slot. It 's also slow in recognizing my sd-cards through my card reader. I have a very fast laptop. A lenovo W530.

Hey tidri. 2 things come to mind if it previously worked. One is a reinstall of all the drivers for the mobo, and the other is a full AV/Malware/Rootkit scan. If everything checks out, a full format and an OS reinstall would be my third move.

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!

Hello,
I have an asus p8z77-V motherboard and the first (blue) pcislot died. I tried moving my video card to the secomd slot but computer rarely boots successfully. The user manual says the board van not run a single card in the second slot, however I have booted my pc and ran it with no problems for a few days but it takes a few tries resetting it before it will boot. It gets stuck looking at the first slot most of the time. Since I have seen it is capable of running with the card in this slot I am wondering if there is a way to trick the board or a setting in the bios to make the board check the second slot first so it will boot everytime.
thankyou for your help

Buy a card reader which plugs into your laptop's USB port. Most card readers can both read from and write to a memory card. You just use copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop to put files on it, just as you would put a file on a hard drive or pen drive.Be aware that you need to keep your backups on two different mediums in case one of them fails. (eg an SD Card and a Pen Drive or CD).

Hi
I am confused about what type of adapter should i buy for my expansion slot, on the descriptoin it says that my laptop have PCI card type II : type :express card slot.

So far what i have read is PCI card type II are different from Express card. I just need to know what my machine supports, a 54mm card or 34 mm card, 16 bit or 32 bit, i just don't know, i need to buy an adapter for esata interface to connect my NAS via esata to my laptop for greater speeds.

Can anyone enlighten me on this, please?

Answer:Re: Satellite M60-104 PCI card Slot or Express Card Slot?

Did you take a look into the user manual?
There are all the details about the M60 series.

But as far as I know the M60-104 unit supports the Cardbus 32-Bit/PC-Card 16-Bit slot.
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

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.

Hello,My only question here is, what's the SIM card slot in my laptop for? My laptop is an HP Elitebook 6930p and it has Windows 7 32-bit. I used the SIM card that's in my phone, but that didn't do anything. Do I need any new drivers?  Or do I need to purchase something in order for my SIM card to work?  Thanks in advance for any answers. 

Answer:SIM Card slot in my laptop - what's it for?

The SIM card from a phone probably wouldn't work in the SIM slot. The SIM slot is for WWAN (mobile broadband) such as you used to see for USB 3G modems. Phones are typically provisioned differently with different options on the provider side which could prevent a phone SIM card from working properly in the SIM slot.The following document discussing the WWAN function of the notebook. You will need to contact a provider and activate the service to get a SIM card for it. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?prodSeriesId=3688868&objectID=c0108652...

My daughter has a laptop with an ethernet connector and no slot for a pcmcia card. She is off to Uni and wants to wirelessly connect her laptop to her housemates desktop. I havent seen the desktop pc, but they have broadband so I assume it has an ethernet connector, (unless its a usb modem of course!)So, we want to wirelessly connect the two, how is the easiest way to do it please, and would the D-LINK DSL-904 be suitable? I hear it has a usb adaptor, so could that be used in the laptop instead of the pcmcia card?

My old Soundblaster Audigy 4 sound card was great, yet now that I switched from desktop PC to my Toshiba 850L laptop, I cannot use this (expensive) sound card anymore and have to put up with inferior sound cards.


Since I am still young and in the past did all my recordings with that card, I searched for the possibility to connect that card to my laptop.
Today I discovered that it might be possible, but chances are that I got it wrong:

From eBay searches I take that I first need to have this "Laptop Expresscard 34", which plugs into USB:
Express Card ExpressCard to USB 3 0 2 Port Adapter for Notebook Laptop PC 34mm | eBay
... which then plugs into this "Laptop Expresscard 34 To 2 PCI slot adapter", with PCI slots for the Audigy 4 soundcard:

My question is:
Did I understand it rightly? Will it work? I hate to blindly trust eBay sellers.

Hello, I have this weird problem with the SD Card slot or maybe it's some of the cards. It won't read all the cards and sometimes it won't read any. The worst part is, once it locked up my computer and then it wouldn't let the whole computer shut down. Sometimes I have to unplug the compter to shut it down. I thought all of this was coming from my camera so I bought a new one. lol The new card that I'm trying to use is a micro from my phone and it's in a ATIVA converter card. My camera card is a SanDisk. It will read it most of the time, but sometimes it won't. I checked to make sure all the drivers were ok and it said they are good to go.

it doesnt even give a message saying the driver is not working properly or something

please help

you might have to wait a little bit.

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

Did you install a generic version of Windows? You need to install the AMD chipset driver first, so other PCI devices can install properly.

What is the size capacity of the SD Card?
Are you running XP? You may need to install Service Pack 3, or a Microsoft hotfix for SDHC support.

Answer:Satellite P200-1FZ: How to insert the smart media card into the card slot

Would be nice to know what notebook model you own.
But, normally, for smaller cards, you will need an adapter which is often included, like for the memory stick pro duo.
I think it is just normal sized and you have to put in the middle of the card reader slot until you hear a click sound.

If you have not changed autorun settings, you should get a new window with the files on your card, when putting it into your notebook.

Answer:How do I tell if my Media Card Reader/Express card slot is functioning correctly?

Hello,
 
Could it be the ExpressCard slot that the FireWire card plugs into?  I've never seen a FireWire card that plugs into the media card slot used for SD Cards.
 
FireWire cards can be a little tricky to get working sometimes, especially when interfacing with a camcorder. 
 
Have you checked with the manufacturer to see if Windows 8.1 drivers are available for it?  Even if they are not, it may be possible to use Windows 7 or even Windows Vista drivers. 
 
Once you have verified that the FireWire card is recognized, plug the camcorder in again, amd see if it gets recognized.  If it does not, check with its manufacturer for Windows 8.1 drivers, just like you did with the FireWire card.
 
At that point, the hardware should all be working with Windows 8.1. 
 
Regards,

So I was wondering if there is something new about this graphic card? I updated my system via the Thinkpad update program. Should i update the AMD driver?The current driver version is: 8.811.1.5000 I can config and load the ATI control panel but when i go to config the screen and choose the display resolution i also can click on extended setup. when going into this area only the Intel HD graphic card is selected, not anything about the ATI. with which program can i control which graphic card is currently running?i know i can also just choose one graphic card in bios, but i want both cards are working.so is there a possibility that i can just deactivate the ati graphic card when using battery mode? How can i open the express card slot at the right side?I couldn't find a button or something to press to release the plastic so i can insert a 34mm express card. And the last question,when i booted the computer for the first time i saw that in the task manager are about 100 processes, that doesn't seem normal.

Answer:E520 Graphic card + express card slot + too many processes

hey Munchkin86,-AMD driver, install the latest one one if the current version which you have on your unit is causing issues.-The E520 comes with Intel HD Graphic card and thus the ATI Control Panel will not work accordingly.- for the express card slot, just press it and the plastic holder should pop out. Also, refer to this : http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/0a60536.pdf- on the part of the processes, depending on the OS, software and drivers installed, having 100+ or so processes is possible. Rule of thumb, if it does not affect the performance of your unit; leave it alone.

Hello,

I´m a Satellite 2450-201 owner and I have a big problem.
I just bought a 4GB SD memory card and nice, it fits on the side slot on my notebook.

It's the first time using the memory card, so a needs-to-format window appears when I try to access.

The Window has the right information : 3.78Gb, Fat32, ...

I Click "OK" and the Windows (XP SP2) informs : cannot complete format (here is portuguese, so it's translated to english)

If the right size is informed , 3.78Gb, why the Windows cannot format ?

My notebook is spyware and virus free (just 23 tasks running and under control), I Have SP2, Bios 1.50 (newer), My SD controller drivers is up-to-date (the last and the only one was released in 2003).

Also tried third party "Panasonic SDFormatter 2.0". It's reporting the unit (hardware) or the mem stick SD is not compatible with the program. And the same effect happens : the Sd unit lost the nice icon and I need to remove/insert the SD to see the same story again.

Help me please, friends.

Answer:Satellite 2450-201: Cannot format 4GB card in SD card slot

Hi

It?s very strange that you?re possible to see the SD card after plug-in. some people has suggested that this SD card slot supports only 256MB, 512MB cards and additionally with no MMC support.

I don?t know if you have ?Toshiba SD card format utility? installed on the laptop but on many Tosh notebooks such utility is preinstalled and could be used for the card formatting.

According to some posting in this forum the format utility of Port?g? M400 could handle the 2GB SD cards but not sure about 4GB.
If possible you could try to install this utility on your notebook but you know you have not big chances that this will work.

I think in such case only a external SD card reader will help you.

I am needing to buy a new laptop that ill use on the road to record live audio from a audio interface that uses firewire. I have been searching for hours and it seems that firewire and express card slots (i have a firewire to express card slot adaptor) are no long being made on laptops. I contacted a few companies that confirmed that.

Other than firewire and express card Is there away to get a firewire signal into a laptop?? via usb maybe? I have yet to find another adaptor.

Or is there a current laptop that can do it that is between $800-$1000 with a good processor?

Any help would be great!!!

Answer:any way to get fire wire signle to a laptop without Firewire or express card slot?

I thought Firewire was that slimmer USB port. Not a wireless thing. Unless you mean Bluetooth or Mobile Broadband.

Hi , Signanandup                    -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Unfortunately the GEforce Card is built in you cannot upgrade to another one, the only 2 things you can upgrade are the HDD & RAM.
 
Is your drive well defragged? That system should run fairly well. Run CCleaner, clean off some junk files. Make sure the power settings are configured for optimal performance.
 
Update us how it goes.

This is a bit complicated. I have a slightly older motherboard, and it still has a PCI card slot. But I need a graphics card (I play WoW) and there aren't any good PCI graphics cards. The only ones that I can find are PCIe. I have seen adapters that could resolve this issue, maybe, but I'm in no way a computer tech and I'm a little confused as to if and how that works. It's a homebuilt computer that my brother did up for me. Currently, I have a riser in there, since the case design requires it. So I guess my question is three-fold.Is there a PCI to PCIe riser (as in a riser that plugs into a PCI slot, but allows me the use of PCIe cards)?How well does a PCI to PCIe adapter work with graphics cards?Would it be better to just get a new motherboard with the right slots?

Answer:PCI card slot and buying a graphics card

A PCIe to PCI riser card doesn't really exist to do what you want.  I've seen PCI to PCI-E x1 adapters, however these require modifying to work with graphics cards as they are typically PCI-E X16, and thus larger than an X1 slot.  I wouldn't recommend going down this route as additionally, the PCI interface will choke any semi modern graphics card due to its low bandwidth and outdated design.The issue I see, is that it sounds like you have an oddball case if you need a riser card, so will a newer motherboard fit?  And, if your board is old enough to have no PCI-E slots, is the rest of your system up to spec to make a new graphics card worthwhile at all?If you could give us a little more information about your computer, we can see what would be the best option for you.

Hi. I have recently aquired a very old computer (8-9 years old). I am looking at replacing the old agp graphics card because it is not working properly and then sell the computer for quite a low price. Any way.

I have looked in the case and took the card out and I belive that the graphics card slot is agp 2x. The card has two slots in it leading me to belive that it is a universal 1.5v 3.3v card. I am just wondering what cards my computer would accept and whether a 4x card would work ok in a 2x card slot.

Any help apreciated.

Thanks.

Answer:SD card stuck in card reader slot

I don't know what model you have, but in general, if I see a card or a optical drive stuck in a machine, I disassemble it to see what's wrong. If you post your model number, berhaps there will be a suggestion specifically for that model.

I logged on my computer and my geforce fx5500 was no longer working. I had to switch my moniter to my on board card. My question did the agp slot possibly quit working or is the card fried. The fan still works but the computer will no longer recognize the card. I don't want to buy a new agp card if it is possible that something on my mother board quit working. Is there anyway to test the slot or card, I don't have a second computer to test the card. I didn't know if slots themselves could go bad. Should I buy a new agp card or try a pci card, I do have an available pci slot.
 

Answer:agp graphics card crashed - is it card or slot

Have you tried deleting the driver for the card then rebooting the PC? This will then reload the driver if it detects the card. You could also take out the card after deleting the driver, make sure the connector isn't corroded or some -such and the slot is clear of fluff etc. Then repace and reboot.

Always try the easy things and the cheapest things first.

I have a compaq laptop with a built in ati radeon xpress 200m graphics card. When i bought the laptop i knew upgrading the graphics card would not really be an option. However I was just wondering if a graphics card can be placed in the express card slot on the laptop. If so will the older card be bypassed and the new card be used or is this just not feasible.

Only some machines can do it... I don't think yours can. :-(

Question: SDHC Card

I have a Sony VGC RB62G computer with Win XP SP3. It will not recognize a 4GB SDHC card. Where can I find the drivers for the SDHC card?

Answer:SDHC Card

Hello and Welcome -A quick line or 2 on SD and SDHC complianceIf your computer's internal card reader works with 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the computer's internal reader is not SDHC compliant. This same logic also applies to digital cameras, if the digital camera reads 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the digital camera is not SDHC compliant.SD and SDHC specificationsThe initial SD card specification defined the interface for cards only up to 2GB capacity. The subsequent SDHC specification was developed to provide increased capacity of 4GB ? 32GB cards. Computers and other products purchased before 2008 may not be SDHC compatible. Computers and other products purchased before 2007 are not SDHC compatible.Verifying the card reader slotIf the card reader slot on your computer does not have the SDHC logo, it is most likely not SDHC compatible and will only read cards up to 2GB capacity.Other options you can use to read files on your SDHC cardIf your computer's card reader is not SDHC compatible, you have 3 options available:1. You can connect your camera (or other device) that works with SDHC to your computer using a USB cable that came with the camera. You should be able to transfer files to the computer this way.2. You can contact your computer manufacturer to see if they have a free firmware update for your model that will make it SDHC compatible3. You can buy inexpensive ... Read more

I plugged in my SD/SDHC Card device into my computer, multiple times to no avail. It's possible that my computer didn't detect it. How can I fix this?
 

Answer:Help with SD/SDHC card

Hi Angelique1472, and welcome to TSG.

I can't tell from your subject line and post if you are having a problem with plugging an SD/SDHC card into a reader on the computer or if your are having a problem with attaching an SD/SDHC reader to the computer.

In the first case, if you are using an SDHC card and an older computer, the reader may not be compatible with SDHC cards and may only support SD cards below a certain capacity.

In the second case, the reader may not be detected until there is a memory card plugged into it. If it is an older reader, it may not be compatible with SDHC cards. The reader may also require drivers be installed on the computer in order to function.

In any case, please give us the details of all the hardware involved and the version of the operating system running on your computer.

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+)
AMD FX 8350 8 Core (4Ghz)
Sapphire AMD Radeon 7870 GHz Edition (2GB)
8GB DDR3 1600 Kingston HyperX memory (2x 4GB)
500GB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
1TB WD Black Edtion SATA HD
Sound Blaster XF-I Titanium PCI-E 1x Sound Card
Thremaltake 750 80+ Bronze PS (Smart Series)
DVDRW (SATA)
DVD-ROM (SATA)
 

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.
