    card stuck in card reader, able to be read
    My girlfriend owns an hp pavillion laptop with a card reader on the side. I inserted a card into it and quickly got it stuck. The weird part about this is that it's actually readable and can be accessed on the card. It was supposed to go in the bottom half of the reader and it slipped to the top half. Is there any way to get this abck out? would the spring force it back out somehow? I really dont want to try and get it fixed... Please Help!!!!

    Try some tweezers, or a flat object, maybe a butter knife...

    You would try your best to refrain from damaging the card reader, but try to slide it out or pull...

    Good luck!

    LOL We have an hp on top of a mac. Press the card in a little further into the laptop and the spring which catches it will push it out. You cant just push and pull the card out of the slot, you have to push the card to unlock it so it will slide out with ease.
