I have a built in card reader on my Pc. It's suddenly stopped working, and all the icons for the different card slots have disappeared from 'My Computer'. I ran system restore, but no difference. I reinstalled the software from the PC applications backup software, but no difference.
Any ideas?

✔ Best Answer
Try this

* Contol Panel
* Performance and Maintenance
* Administrative Tools
* Services
* Smart Card( check if its active and started manually)
* If not click twice and start it ,then click ok.
* Reboot your computer (I shut it down holding the main button in for a few sec)

If thats ok, remove the cables from the motherboard. Boot the pc, shutdown, reconnect the cables & reboot.

This keeps on happening on my Scaleo T.

Before posting try google. Backup. Use anti virus software.
