    SD card reader not working after 10586 1511 update


    My HP laptop automatically got a new update today. Took almost 35 minutes to get it done. So far the only thing not working is my SD Card Reader. Anyone have any suggestions to get it working, I use it a lot! Hp was originally windows 7 and first windows 10 update was several months ago. The reader was working on that version of 10, not sure which one it was.
    Thanks

    What is the specific name of the card reader as in make/model?

    Win + X > Disk Management. If the Reader is listed, assign it with a new drive letter.

    It has to be in Device Manager first as what I was asking is what card reader is it, for example, on my ASUS, it's a Reaktek Card Reader.

    I have problems with the Realtek card reader in my Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop, The card reader keeps showing no card is present but the card reappears if I remove and reinsert it. I've tried various drivers to no avail. All worked fine in Windows 8.1. There is either a problem with Realtek's drivers or Windows 10.

    My mistake. I thought it was an external card reader.

    Yours, this driver might works. See: Realtek Card Reader Driver

    It might not be the drivers but the contacts may need cleaning, you can use something like a pipe cleaner with 70% isopropanol (isopropyl rubbing alcohol) to clean it.
