Pavillion Notebook 14: SD Card - could not lock SD card in place


I had been using the SD card for alomost 1 year and not, I am unable to use my SD card. The SD card slot seems not to hold the card in place. There was formerly a clicking sound when I insert the SD card, but I don't hear any sound. The SD card comes out as soon as I leave the card in the slot.

I guess that the mechanism of the wedge or the pendulum inside the card is not working properly.

My laptop is out of warranty now. Is there a part that I can't purchace and replace to work or fix existing material itself?

Kind regards

    I can only assume I'm missing something quite basic here and hope it's an easy solution!

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Too bad. I thought about it.

    In order to have the FULL R/W permissions, remote account must have administrative permissions OR each individual BCTI file needs to be changed in order to have R/W capibilities for a non-admin, account sharing.

    I changed the thinking 'content' folder that it would allow R/W permissions to each of the nested folders BCTI. He did not. I had to give permissions to read/write to each individual file.

    Thanks for your time, Bob.

  • "Windows could not update the configuration to start the computer" error during the upgrade of Vista in Windows XP

    I have a laptop Dell Inspiron 1505, that is running Windows XP Media Center Sp3. I'm doing a place in upgrading to Vista since the disks to upgrade Dell... Everything's fine until the 'Expansion of the files' [27%], then the installation fails with this message: "Windows could not update the configuration to start the computer. Installation cannot continue. Any changes made to your computer during the upgrade". I did a google search for a fix that involves changing a value in the registry in the HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E976-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} for example change the value to PartMgr Upperfilters. Unfortunately, this value was the default for my registry key changes could be made. Some other fixes involved the renaming of Upperfilter.bak, for Upperfilters unfortunately this .bak value does not exist in my registry.

    I tried to boot from the disk of Vista and changing the msconfig for a selective startup but without result.

    In addition, the stall even appears at a similar point when you try to upgrade to Windows 7. Is it because of the presence of hidden Media Direct and Dell restore partitions? Compatibility Assistant programs for the two operating systems found nothing significant. Anti virus has been disabled during the installation procedure. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.



    Not quite, but pretty close. Media Direct could not lock the boot sector. It must be a BIOS lock or a mechanism of protection provided by your antivirus software.  Given that, I would check your program settings then for all that prevents changes to the boot sector. You may find more easy just uninstall it and reinstall it after the upgrade. Good luck, Rick Rogers, aka "Crazy" - Microsoft MVP Windows help -

  • Device could not start - Code 10 - Intel Wireless Card on NB550D

    Hello world

    It's just a normal Toshiba NB550D netbook

    The only thing I change is the card inside Wireless: the original is an Atheros common half mini card. Recently, I have the urge to use internet in 5 ghz (frequency).

    So, I decided to replace the old with the * half mini card Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN *.
    It turns so well. The pilot is not recognized or specifically the windows tries to install the driver but FAIL is reported. Device manager tool shows a "!" next to the network adapter and when I go the properties on the general tab: "* the device could not start - Code 10."

    I tried many ways to uninstall the driver and reinstall it again; also tried to download the drivers from the website of toshiba for the network card intel.

    Nothing works so far and yes I don't know what to do now.

    The possibility that the card intel is broken or defective is eliminated because I checked with another laptop already and just, it worked like a charm.

    Please help me solve this problem. I really need to use two strips (2.4 and 5 ghz) internet.
    Appreciate any help!

    > The possibility that the card intel is broken or defective is eliminated because I checked with another laptop already and just, it worked like a charm

    Regarding the error code 10:

    + The Code 10 error applies mainly to the problems of hardware driver and devices or compatibility problems between the drivers of equipment and additional software that is installed in Windows. +

    I put t think deliver its wireless network card might be a compatibility problem between the BIOS and the wireless network adapter.
    All devices are supported by the BIOS.

    But the WLan card already appears in Device Manager and so I think that there should not be a BIOS compatibility issue.

    Have you checked if the chipset would properly address the Wlan card?

    I have a HP Pavilion notebook. My system does not detect my sd card and I can't eject. Help?

    From my understanding, most laptops allow you to simply remove the SD card back.  Others have a simple spring mechanism that requires you to press the memory card slightly until you hear a "click", similar to a click on a retractable pen, which must eject the card.

  • Locking XP! error "the system could not log. Make sure your username and domain are correct, then type your password again.

    Original title: Locking XP!

    I tried to read all the relevant messages and walked the Earth for this solution, if someone could help me I would be grateful.

    A dear friend died and I got his PC - a fast XP with SP3 which (elderly) she only used for web & email. His account has been "Judi".

    I noticed a while back that, on the logon screen, that there is another user called 'Fiona' (she told me an old co-worker who probably stayed with her).

    Now a friend in need of a very old HP PC Lions not having completely fortunately I managed to copy his files before he was insane - I offered this newer PC it after that I have "set up" for him.

    I put a new account in place on this new PC "Ken" has been added. Then, after the deletion of accounts Judi & Fiona, I cleaned the machine with MalwareBytes, CCleaner & defrag.  All is well now with only Ken appearing on the screen logon (with an image of the appropriate icon), that I used several times in the implementation of his e-mail account and move its acrossetc files. His password is empty.

    Being the only user now Ken, I thought that it strange would its user (only) one click each time to the 'Log in', so I searched and found a box that said something to the effect «... do not show a picture of connection...» » .  That started my problem!  Removing his login "icon" brings ONLY the following - FIONA!

    When connecting a Logon Message now says "the system could not log. Make sure your username and domain are correct, then type your password again.  Letters in passwords must be typed using the proper case" the choice for this error message is 'OK', which takes you to a login screen 'Type Win98' older Classic looking (no icon user) who was behind this logon Message, with (name) Fiona appears on the login screen (former) (full name and empty below the password) , with the choice to enter the password or a stop!

    Of course the password cannot be guessed (Yes - tried blank, admin, etc.) so the only choice is to stop.

    VA F8 at startup for 'Safe mode' goes to screen black WITH Fiona login screen as usual safe mode above and booting with the CD using NTPASSWD shows the usual 1) Administrator 2) 3) invited Ken and 4) Support Microsoft - NO FIONA is shown - and I put all these passwords to 'empty '. Of course repair and recovery repair 'R' does nothing on the removal of Fiona

    This translates the original message & Fiona connection again.  How can I return to screen "image icon" connection without losing files and mail Ken Ken. Where Fiona could hide when it is not a USER of the NET?

    Yet once again, I'd appreciate any help. Brian.

    You should be able to just select (click on) "Fiona", press the delete key, and then type any desired account name.  It doesn't work?

    If you cannot type on "Fiona" in the logon window, you can use the following procedure to modify the Windows registry... or you can take the computer to an independent repairer and ask them to fix it for you.  Don't go to a chain of stores, as a "geek squad" or BigBoxStoreUSA type of place.

    Go here-->

    Choose method 1 or method 2.  I'm familiar with Hiren (method 2), but not with the program described in method 1 (even though it seems simple).  Any ISO file you choose, I suggest to download and use ImgBurn (free) to create your CD bootable from the downloaded ISO file.

    The registry key to change is in the same place as "userinit" (which is the example used in the article), so to follow 1-5 step method or method 2 for step 7.

    You will be at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

    In the right pane of the registry editor, you will see a large list of items.  Scroll down the page until you see LogonType and double-click it.

    In the "Value data" box, type 1, and click OK (1 is the same either hexadecimal or decimal).

    Close the registry editor, take the CD from the drive and reboot.  You should see the Welcome screen when Windows restarts.

  • PLL error-1074118135 could not phase-lock of the external reference clock

    I tried to block the generator of signals Vectoriels PXI-5671 until its source Ref in instead of the clock on board and it is the following error is received:

    Error 1074118135 has occurred to niRFSG wait until what


    Possible reasons:

    The converter has reported the following error:


    Measurements: PLL could not phase block for external reference clock.


    Make sure that your reference clock is connected and that it meets the specifications of the voltage and jitter. Additionally, make sure that the reference clock frequency is correctly specified.

    The clock source I use is the right frequency (10 MHz) and levels (I tried + 6 dBm and + 12 dBm). However, I was never able to get the 5671 to lock to the Ref in the clock source. Any thoughts?

    I haven't dived in the measure of the quality of the 10 MHz clock source that is fed to the VSG but it comes from a device of precision GPS timing, so I'm optimistic that the quality of the clock is within tolerances of the plug VSG.

    Hello tsileo,

    The 5671 requires that you provide it a square of 10 MHz wave which is free race to +/-0.5 ppm precision. I think that the amplitude levels look correct.  I would like to confirm the accuracy of your GPS unit's clock.  I also would ensure that free running clock is scheduled before the NOR-RFSG task.  According to the frame that you use, you might be able to try to connect to the clock of 10 MHz of the chassis with the REF in connector just to make sure that there is not something wrong with the device.

    Kind regards
