Multimedia Card stuck in my laptop

Postby cocoa_tree » Wed, 24 Jan 2007 9:38 pm

I always thought that any size of mmc can easily slot into laptop. But when i put my hp (Nokia n70) 's MMC into acer laptop, i realise that it is too small to be taken out. Oh No! I may sound a bit foolish. Will Someone plz tell me how to take it out, w/o getting warranty void?

:???: Multimedia card! Try turning on its side and shaking, or if you can see it, you can certainly take it out with a long thin screwdriver, make sure the computer is unpluged and turned off, before attempting to do it.

do you have a pair of tweezers? I got a sony ericson one kinda stuck once, even though it had an extender thingy, but I got it out with tweezers.

If that is not possible I would say take it to a computer shop and pay someone to avoid voiding any warranty

Can't you dismantle the computer yourself, it's really quite simple, search out a step by step diagram on the internet.

Do not do this if your PC is still under warranty...

If your warranty has already expired, or you're in a hurry, take the laptop to Sim Lim Square and find an Acer dealer. They can probably fix it on the spot for a token fee, and won't break your laptop in the process.
