Expresscard keeps popping out

2014-04-07, 6:48 AM

HI Everyone.

 

My Expresscard on T420s keeps popping out accidentially. Is there a way to stop it?

 

There is no mounting screw place for me to screw the card in.

 

Cheers

Nelson

If you mash the card in, it will pop back out. The spring is strong. But, if you push it in slowly with limited pressure, you will feel the spring mechanism grab it. There is a detent as the card engages with the connectors.

 

Don't forget to use "Safely Remove Hardware" before ejecting the card (like any other "media" device).
