T430 - nothing happens after insert SIM-Card into SIM Card Slot

Hi, i can this has been discussed but i cannot find the answer to this,,,

I have looked at another post which suggested to to upgrade the driver from a sony vaio, but it said i already have the latest driver installed.

 

i have T430, win 7, 8gig on 64 bit.

 

nothing happens when i insert the card in to the slot, ive not had the lappy long but i think i remember a green arrow at bottom right saying somthing about safe disconnect or somthing

 

i can not offer any error as nothing happens at all to give any guidance.

 erlier i installed the driver from lenovo and thats as far as i have got.

 

many thanks

Hi

1. Does your laptop have wwan card installed? What's the model? Check out in the Device Manager, Network Adapters thread.

2. Are there any unknown devices in the Device Manager?

3. Be sure wwan card is enabled in the BIOS Setup (Secutity menu, I/O Port Access)

4. Be sure hardware wireless radio switch is turned on (on the right side of the case)

Open Disk Management:

Insert your SD card. Does the SD card appear in Disk Management?
