When did this start? System crash, virus infection, whatever? Did you just add this card reader as a new add-on?

Does this happen only when you attempt to use the card reader, otherwise everything works properly?

> Enter Device Manager; any error marks posted?

> Do a system restore to a date before this problem started. BTW....I do not mean an operating system restore, just the system restore with restore dates.

Whenever I attach a device to the card reader's USB it causes my other ports to stop functioning.
I don't know why or when this started, the card reader came with the system when it was built.
I don't see any errors in Device Manager.

If a system restore doesn't fix it, try this:

from an elevated command prompt type SFC /scannow, (space after SFC) and let the computer finish. If it calls for your Windows CD, insert it. If you don't have one (most retail computers do not) there isn't much you can do. Possibly borrow one from someone (must be the same type as your system, Home or Pro, etc.).

M/Soft has a Windows ISO download site, but you will require a product key to download it. I don't think that a retail manufacturer license key will work. You can burn one of these to a CD and use it to supply a CD for the fix (if necessary). I am not positive this would work since I have never done it, but I have heard of others doing it with success. From how you describe your computer it sounds like you built it so you may have the retail CD already if you purchased a copy of Windows, so the above is not necessary.
 

In case you aren't sure about an elevated command, here's how: with Windows running, click the START button >Accessories > Right click Command Prompt >Run As Administrator

If all that doesn't help, open the side of the box and check the cable running to the reader, unplug and replug it. If all that doesn't help, most likely the reader went bad.

If you have a retail computer, it may still be under warranty so I would check that out. Same for the card reader itself, if it has an active manufacturer's warranty.
