Sluggish SD slot and fix for Miix 2 8

Uninstall KB2913236 update.

There is one more issue: after insert a micro SD card, it is not recognized. The fix: disable the Intel SD host controller (the 3rd one under SD host adapters), then re-enable it. To do this with a simple click:

1) Find devcon.exe. This little utility by Microsoft can disable and enable a device.

2) In the same folder of devcon.exe, create a sdslot.bat file and copy and paste these two lines:

devcon.exe disable "ACPI\VEN_8086&DEV_0F14"
devcon.exe enable "ACPI\VEN_8086&DEV_0F14"

3) Optionally make a shortcut of sdslot.bat on your desktop for convenience.

From now on after you insert a SD card into the slot, right click on the shortcut, run as administrator, the card will be recognized immediately.


  1. Hi, its not a fix but a nice workaround. Thanks for that hint.

    i have the same problem. first i thought the cardslot is damaged. After i take it again out and reinsert ist recognizes the card.

  2. the behavior anged after updating firmware to 1.07. so right now the sd card is suddenly accessible after inserting without doing anything. woth the old bios firmware 1.05 it still had this issue...
