SD card reader not working on dell nspiron n5110

This question is not answered

Hello, I am having problems with my SD card reader. It seems to no longer function. When I put a SD card into the slot, the computer doesn't pick it up at very least. Any help is appreciated.

  • Hi Manshu,

    My operating system is Windows 7. I have had this problem for about a month so far. I've installed Minecraft and a program called Magic Launcher which is for Minecraft. However, the SD card reader in the computer worked earlier when I already had Minecraft and Magic Launcher. The SD card I am using can be read by the computer using an SD USB reader, but not with the interior SD reader in the computer. The SD card also works on another laptop that isn't mine.


  • Hi Bravin, 

    Please install the driver for SD card reader using the link mentioned below:

    The driver is listed under chipset: Realtek RTS5138 Card Reader Driver.

    NOTE: Please choose the correct operating system before downloading the driver. 

    Thanks & Regards
