SD card reader help.

by mantoe / May 20, 2013 9:28 PM PDT

So I did a windows XP reinstall with sp3 on my Dell Inspiron e1505, everything seems to be working great but my sd card reader. I don't have any errors in the device manager and I tried dell site and it seems that I have all the drivers I need. I would really appreciate all the info in correcting this issue.

Thanks all

Driver

Thanks but I already had that driver installed, I did reinstall it again and still no luck. I found in an old post someone ran an autofix from mircosoft, I tried it and got this error message not really sure what it means and if there is something in my settings that need to be fixed.

At this point.

Let's say you are using the factory issued OS and the drivers as prescribed. Now it's a hardware issue. I rarely replace such readers as the USB version is pretty cheap.

Second idea. Dell QuickSet.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / May 23, 2013 1:29 AM PDT

Many if not all Dells have helper apps like Dell QuickSet. Be sure to read the manual about reinstalling the OS as apps are needed beyond drivers to enable features.
