Card Reader Not Showing IN My Computer

Hi

I upgraded to windows 7 from xp over a year ago on my Dell Dimension 5150 and all has been fine.

All of a sudden my internal card reader has dissapeared from My Computer. The strange thing is its still there in device manager. I have tried uninstalling from device manager and rebooting to see if that helps but just installs again and does not show in my computer

Please can soomeone help
