T420 How to stop ExpressCard from popping out

2014-01-23, 20:50 PM

Hi

 

I bought an ExpressCard 34 USB 3 card. However when I plug a USB cable in the card springs out.

 

I can't see a way to stop this from happening.

 

I need a CF card reader ExpressCard but can't afford for it to keep popping out.

 

Any help appreciated.

 

Thanks

I noticed inside my T430s that the expresscard slot (and the included SD adapter card) had a mounting screw hole. That may be a standard feature for all expresscard slots. But you would have to open up your system to add the mounting screw.

Hi. Apologies I am unsure what you mean by the mounting screw.
