    Hi all,

    For some reason this issue popped up in the device manager (yellow exclamation mark) , and it appears to be related to a built-in card reader. I cannot find a specific driver on their web site to address this problem, so I don't know what to download. The Microsoft driver update function says that I have the latest driver, and their is no option to roll back the driver.

    This is a new Dell i620-3791BK, 64 bit computer. (warranty expired)

    By the way, I uninstalled the device in the device manager, rebooted, but the issue still exists.

    I won't be bothered if the computer is working ok.

    During last so many years, I have come across the same problem myself but there seems to be no resolution & I always left it alone.

    I was thinking along those same lines, myself, but it seemed ridiculous for this to be happening to a new Dell computer. For what it's worth, the driver is loading now :rolleyes: and I can use the card reader.

    Seriously though, I am thinking about doing a factory system recovery. There are other quirks that have popped up of late - like the desktop freezing up, Accuweather program loading even though the .exe cannot be found in Add Remove Programs, or no where else, etc., etc., etc.

    Windows 7 is a strange animal compared to XP. XP was more stable in my opinion.

    I think most of the problems that you are having are more to do with the c-r-a-p loaded by Dell than with Win 7.

    What you need is PC Decrapifier.

    Thanks.

    By the way, am I correct that Dell sometimes does not give an option to restore a computer to its factory settings? I pressed F8 to choose a repair option, and there was no factory restore option after going through the prompts.

    RTFM.

    Every manufacturer has different ways of doing the same thing. Some supply you with recovery cd & others have a hidden recovery partition. You have to read through the manual to find out how to go about it.

    Before doing anything, ensure that you have a solid backup of the files that you require. Here restore to factory settings mean - delete everything on hard disk & copy the whole thing again.

    It appears that I lost access to my recovery partition after I shrank C drive and created partitions D and E. I must have changed the master boot record or something. I ordered a free set of installation discs from Dell, so I should be OK.

    Having a bit more problems today. I rebooted my machine, and a black screen showed up (as it usually does), but this time it stayed up at least a minute or more before the Dell logo appeared. After the desktop appeared, I opened the device manager and I saw a yellow exclamation mark beside a USB device.

    I unplugged my 2GB Kingston USB drive, reinstalled it, and the problem went away. I can't remember this drive causing issues on my XP machine before. Does this happen with Windows 7 often? I'll buy another USB drive tomorrow and test it.

    So far, I haven't had any more issues with the card reader (knock on wood).

    No. Something wrong either with your machine or OS.

    Apparently the card reader is listed in My Computer as removable drive H. It works fine, but when you remove the SD card H drive is still present.

    I hate to admit it, but with all of the quirks I've been having I am probably looking at a reinstall of the OS.

    Update...

    Here of late, the card reader is no longer listed (permanently) as removable drive H in My Computer. The only way it shows up now is if I install an SD card in the reader slot. I guess Windows update must have repaired something. :)

    The OS seems to be running well now with no more quirks,
