Precision M4600 - SD Card Reader Not Working - Windows 10 Driver Issue?

Q: Precision M4600 - SD Card Reader Not Working - Windows 10 Driver Issue?

My SD card reader on my Precision M4600 has not been working ever since I upgraded to Windows 10. It doesn't look like there is a new driver for the SD reader from what I can tell. Is there any other solution or 3rd party driver that I could use to get m SD card reader to work? I really would like to be able to use it again.....
The device manager lists my smart card reader as Broadcom Usbccid Smartcard Reader (WUDF)

I have a Dell Precision M4400 with a build in Smart Card Reader.
I'm using the Belgian eID program which is a program to login to  the government website.
On the laptop Windows 10 with all the updates is installed. I have, I think, the latest Broadcom driver installed for the smart card reader.
Now my problem: when I insert my ID card into the Smart Card Reader I get the error message "read error". I already changed the build-in Smart Card Reader with a new one but I still get the same error.
Is this a driver problem or does my laptop simply do not work with windows 10 anymore, or is it another problem?
All info to let it work would be very appreciated.

I have a laptop dell precision m4600 the graphics card inside is NVIDIA Quadro 1000M with 2GB GDDR3 dedicated memory, plus intel graphics HD 3000. Is it possible to upgrade the NVIDIA Quadro 1000m to meet a 3D VERY complex modeling design which I am working on it at an engineering software?
because i have some 3d drawings work slowly in performance with the existing graphics card.
if so, please provide me by the list of varies upgraded graphics cards based on dell recommendations on my laptop.

I have a "SanDisk Ultra CompactFlash" 4GB card and an internal card reader (HP desktop). When I insert the card into the reader, the green light above the slot turns on as if it recognizes the device, but it doesn't show up. Device Manager says that the driver is installed and working properly, and I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and restarted my computer. A system restore isn't really an option because it isn't my computer.

Any idea how I can fix this? Could it matter that I'm not on the Admin account on the computer?

Hey there,

I'd like to start by thanking anyone who can offer some help or suggestions. I have installed XP SP3 (Lite) on my Acer Aspire 5920 using the SATA drivers. However, I cannot get the Card Reader Driver to work.

I installed the Ricon Card Reader driver from the Acer website and from other forums but whenever I put my SD Card into the slot I get a Driver Install message popping up. I cannot get this to work and thus I cannot install working drivers.

The only driver known to cause problems with XP for the 5920 is the webcam driver, which I have not installed.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can fix this issue?

when I plug my flash drive or HDD into back slot of my PR03X with USB 3.0 Windows shows "This device could be working faster, plug it into USB 3.0" (or something like that)..
When I try it with my Latitude E7440 in dock it works fine. Also USB on M4600 works good.
Is it because my Precision doesn't have generic USB 3.0 support, or I just need some driver? I have installed newest USB driver.Thanks 

A:Precision M4600 dock USB 3.0

There are only two USB 3.0 ports on the system -- unlike later models, the system's main chipset has no USB 3.0 support, so the ports on the dock will not run as 3.0.
The system has an add-in NEC/Renesas USB 3 controller for the ports so marked on the system - you should get USB 3.0 speed from these, but not the ports on the docking station.

Hi All,
Got a Precision m4600 laptop with Intel i7 2760QM CPU, recently upgraded graphics card to nvidia Quadro 2000M and added 16GB RAM. 
Fresh install of Win 10, I ran a CPU stress test in Dell SupportAssist software. 
Noticed CPU temp peaked at 100*C and it stabilized at ~91*C however the short 100*C appears to be on Core #3? 
Is this expected? pls see image attached

I have re-pasted it properly, good quality paste and just a thin layer applied... I'm puzzled?

Unfortunately it seems my Seagate ST9750420AS is causing blue screen issues. I get error 2000:0142 on a quick test but then agaibn nothing on the extended test, but continue to get blue screens. Unfortunately also whilst trying to make a bootable system disk. I can still read all the data, I have all that as a backup, so not too bad, but I don't have a system disk to reinstall from. So that may be difficult. Any advice?
I want to replace this disk with an SSD. Can anyone advise what I need to be aware of for this? I've looked at the wd blue. What form factor / height/ width / depth SATA do I require? Would a Sata III 6Gb/s work? Size 2.75" x .275" x 3.95"?
My Precision is out of warranty.

The latest sBIOS A16 for Dell Precision M4600 have one unpleasant bug in ACPI module preventing ACPI-based OS to boot if any Nvida card from 2012 till present is installed (for ex. K2100M or M2000M). The only way to boot into OS is to use acpi=off parameter in Linux - otherwise, there is a kernel panic addressed to ACPI table problem. Dell M4700 works just fine with new cards. HP Elitebook 85*0w rivals have no problems either.
Yes, I know that this not a fresh machine, but the bug still exist. It would be great, if it will be fixed.

P.S. No problem at all with graphics solution from AMD.

I installed BIOS update A16 to my M4600 and after it went to 100%, the system will no longer POST. No dell logo, no ability to get into BIOS. The hard drive light is bright white, and the battery light next to it flashes White once then 4 times amber, then white again plus 4 times amber, and repeats for a few more times before just settling on non-stop flashing amber.
Pulled and swapped the memory and the hard drive, tried it with and without the battery, also pulled the CMOS battery. Again, no video on the screen, no Dell logo, no POST, no fans on, nothing activity wise other than those flashing lights when I turn it on. I'm thinking something went wrong with the BIOS update even it looked like it completed successfully and I've done hundreds of these to various Dell laptops over the years.
Any ideas what I should try next? I can't find that solid white HD, flashing amber Battery diagnostic code anywhere in any documentation or online so I don't even know where to begin.
Plus it's not under warranty anymore which angers me because it appears the only reason my laptop has been bricked is because I dared install the A16 update that was helpfully published right there on Dell's support page.

Display on my laptop start to blink from time to time, there ara also some other artifacts (like colour change) which dissapear when I change diplay angle - so I suppose my flex ribbon makes this problem. Serching for spare parts I've niticed that there are few types of them. So the question is which numbers are correct for my laptop?
350405500-GG2-G - by Brooks -  this is the one I have now - but hard to find that one.
I found also
350405300-600-G - by Foxconn - this one is most common 
79010Q800-011-G - by Yageo -  this one is with complete Lid & antennas - nice option cause my cover have some little scrathes

All three have different manufacturers are they interchengeable?
I know easiest way is buy the same i found in laptop but didn't found any of them in Poland.

I just got a used M4600, and the currently installed bios is A08. When I try to update to A16, it restarts, says it's updating firmware, but fails at 0%. It gives no reason, and no error code as far as I can tell. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

A:Bios update failed - Dell Precision M4600

That is NOT the issue! There is nothing wrong with the M4600 motherboards per se.
Everybody has been trying to find why when trying a BIOS upgrade, the system immediately fails with a basic "BIOS Update Failed" and no specific error code or more explanation. The answer is in the PDF document below - that is the message displayed when BIOS authentication fails!
You just have to look up the Dell Signature Firmware 'feature' that was introduced into a number of laptop incl the M4600.  Download PDF doc. That was a feature introduced per NIST requirements.
In a nutshell, they changed the way BIOS authenticates a BIOS file before it will use it to update the BIOS & EC firmware. The M4600 is in the list of "Legacy Systems" where this was introduced. Basically, these systems did NOT have the Signature Firmware when produced. 
Version A04 introduced this feature. After you install that, you will have an option to turn the Signature Firmware requirement On (default is Off). Once turned On, it can NOT be turned off! 
The problem starts in BIOS ver A08. Something in the code is wrong. Because on some M4600s it updates the BIOS AND Activates the Signature Firmware requirement. After that, the system will NOT authenticate ANY other BIOS versions so you will NOT be able to upgrade past version 8!
I manage many, many systems for a company. I am currently sitting on 33 (yes, that many) M4600 with that exact same situation!

I want to open the back panel of the Dell Precision M4600 so that I can upgrade the RAM and also put in a secondary hard disk. There is no documentation or tutorial for this. Anyone can provide and guide on how to do this? I can only remove the battery but from there I'm lost. I can see 2 screws covering the back back panel but I'm not sure if it's the right screw to remove.
Any help is appreciated.

A:How to open Dell Precision M4600 back panel

EDIT: Found the manual!
To add to urlnotfound's post:
Remove the two screws under hte battery that hold the cover.
Slide, sometimes with a little force, the cover backwards towards the rear of the laptop.  It only moves about 1/4", and is completely free to lift off at that point.
Note that there is only one 2.5" HDD place, and it's the hot-swapable one you see on the side (still have yet to figure out how to remove it, the level doesn't seem to do anything - yet).  The "2nd HDD" is actually a dedicated "mSATA" slot, which stands for Minicard SATA.  It's a tiny PCI-express slot, just like the three you see when you remove the cover.  They are very rare to buy though.  I really wish I bought the one Dell was offering, cause aftermarket they are next to non-existant.  I found only 2 manufacturers, which are the same brands under the hood.  But they are only the 50mm size.  I want a 70mm site to slot into the WWLAN PCI-Express slot, cause those are available up to 240 GB.
And FYI, mSATA devices with SATA II interfaces can get up to 240 to 250 MB/s read/write!  No, there are no SATA III mSATA that I could find.  Been searching for a month for them...
Also note that only the two top RAM sticks are accessible here.  I'm about to call Dell support to find out where the othe two DIMM slots a... Read more

For a several years I use DELL Precision laptops. First M4500 and from 2012 M4600.
My Precision M4600 configuration comprises of: i7 qqd proc , 16GB RAM, 2GB Nvidia quadro and 3 hard drives:
1st is SSD DELL Samsung mSATA PM810 128GB - Linux system
2nd SSD Intel ultra speed 520 - 240GB - Windows system
3rd HDD Seagate 7200 - Data
For 4 years I didn't have any problem with my Precision configuration. Suddenly a week ago problems on boot started.
Namely, every second time BIOS during update do not recognize my mSATA PM810 disk and cannot boot up the system. That means: all 'odd' times (1st, 3rd, 5th ...) I start computer or reset the mSATA disk is recognized under other name and not as MiniCard while all 'even' (2nd, 4th etc) everything is OK.
Problem description: I start computer, After passes BIOS the screen is blank nothing happens blocked. I restart, all fine. I restart again, again blank screen nothing, I restart again - all fine, and like this goes around. 
I absolutely didn't do anything with machine it just started at once behaving like that.
Things that I have unsuccessfully tried:
Change Boot order in BIOS leaving only MiniCard - does not work. I've seen that each odd time BIOS changes the name of mSATA in disk order and when I restart it brings it back to normal. It does that if SATA is set as Raid-on or as AHCI device.
Downgrading BIOS to A15 - nothing and back to A16 nothing.

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (5th Gen) My Fingerprint scanner stopped working so I updated bunch of drivers, two of them being: (Synaptics HID-Compliant Touch pad Device) and (Synaptics Pointing Device). After the update, the trackpad stopped working properly. The clicking function still works, but movement, scrolling, windows precision gestures ceased proper function. When (Synaptics HID-Compliant Touch pad Device) is disabled via Device Manager, touchpad movement works properly, however, two-finger scrolling still does not work. [I think two-finger scrolling is not a part of the windows precision gestures, but I could be wrong about that.) I tried updating and uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the two affected drivers. I am uncertain which of the two drivers are causing the problem.

Hello, I have a question about SD Card Readers. I have one where you insert the SD Card, and plug in a USB cable to connect it to the computer. Does the SD Card use a USB Root Hub to connect, or does it use the Realtek 2.0 Card Reader?

My real question is, if I had accidentally uninstalled my Realtek 2.0 Card Reader built into the computer, will an SD Card Reader connected by USB be able to read the SD Cards?

Also, is there a way I can prevent SD cards from being read through a reader on my computer without uninstalling a USB Hub Driver? Like specifically prevent new Drivers from being installed, or prevent new SD Cards from being recognized? Such as using a free downloadable tool that someone may know about.

I have tried going to Devices and Printers, right clicking on my PC, Device Installation Settings, then turning off automatic driver installs. After I do that, and plug in a new device, it still auto installs the drivers and can use it.

A:G710 - Card reader not working since Windows 10 update

Hi Bill2701 , 
Since it was working before an update , system restore should undo any driver change as rolling back drivers would. 
To proceed forward , you may try to update and reinstall both chipset and card reader driver (to run as administrator) offered from the support site as windows update may have change its value.
To prevent unintended updates you may change settings to never .
Similar discussion testing card reader via Ubuntu Live CD/ USB Stick ensure that it is not a hardware problem.
