Go into Device Manager and uninstall the card reader then reboot the system to have Windows automatically re-install it.  This normally fixes this problem.

You need to upload the graphic to one of the image hosting sites like PhotoBucket, ImageShack, etc. and then provide a link to it in your message.  You can't upload an image directly to the forum (at least not that I know of).

Mine is listed in device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Click the plus symbol and it will give you a list. Mine is listed as picure cad controller. Right click on this item and it will give you the option to uninstall it.

What happens then? Do you have to load something?

After removing the driver, reboot your computer and it should reload it.
