How to Remove a PC Card from Your Laptop

Although you can easily pull out a PC Card from the PC slot in your laptop, that’s not the best way to treat your laptop’s hardware. Instead, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the system tray.

  2. Choose the device you want to remove.


    A message appears, telling you that the device can be safely removed.

  3. Pull the PC Card out from its slot.


    Some cards need a bit of help here. You have to find a small button to the right of the card. Pushing the button in a little makes it pop out about a half-inch or so. Then press the button back into the laptop to help push out the PC Card.

Store the PC Card in a proper place, such as in your laptop bag or in a drawer or cubbyhole with the rest of your laptop gear. The idea here is to keep the PC Card from being stepped on or crushed by a 20-ounce ceramic coffee mug.
