Driver Recognition Issues

When I insert a SD card from my camera, my computer fails to recognize it. Card is inserted correctly and I have tried 2 different cards. Previously had 1 of your techs in to remove a virus and I’m wondering if i’m missing a driver or whatever. Thankful for any help you can give me.

There are 2 types of SD card, just a standard SD, which goes up to 2gb in size. Any card reader should read these. There is another type of SD card called “SDHC” for SD High Capacity. The SDHC card require a much newer card reader, and are a lot less likely to be read. You may be able to download drivers for a SDHC card reader from your computer manufacturers website, or give us a call and we can guide you through it!

Deleting Programs

When I go into my programs to delete programs that I no longer use, I can’t seem to delete them completely. I get messages saying “cannot be located” or the program is still there after I have tried to uninstall it.

The best way to remove or uninstall a program is to go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs (Windows XP) or Programs and Features (Windows Vista & Windows 7) and remove programs in that window. Any other way may result in the program not being completely removed. You can also run the uninstaller for the programs if they provide one. This is usually found in the respective program folder in the START Menu Programs (or All Programs) list.
