Help with HP DV7-2185dx card reader

My laptop is very old but I never really had a problem with it. I never really used the SD card reader that it has, but when I tried to recently, it didnt work. Possibly just really old? But would like to know if its possible to make it work or not.
I am on windows 7. When I plug in my SD card I dont get any kind of notification or light, just nothing happens.

I tried to download some card reader drivers, not sure if it even pertains to the card reader. I read to try uninstall and reinstall the driver, but I dont know what to look for under my device manager.

any help would be great

thank you
