Windows 7: Realtek PCIE CardReader not recognizing sd card

Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
Realtek PCIE CardReader not recognizing sd card

Dear sevenforums,

I'm trying to get my cardreader to work to no avail. I've reinstalled my driver several times but it still won't recognize the sd card plugged into the machine. I've tried setting the systemvariable devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices to 1 and see if the card is hidden somehow but it's not.
I'm using windows 7 Enterprise 64bit and haven't found a solution so far. Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot the issue?

EDIT: I've tried downloading the latest realtek card reader driver and installed it but that didn't work.

My windows explorer doesn't show the sd card at all

Probably the easiest and fastest way to fix this is to get a USB SD Card Reader:

Go to your local store and get one of these, and likely your troubles will be over.
