Latitude E7440 - memory card reader doesn't work after bios update

Hello all,
After updating the BIOS to version A16 or A17 doesn't work memory card reader 😞

On the aforementioned version of the BIOS, when you want to turn on the computer with a memory card inside the system do not get up! Of course, without a memory card system will get up normally but when you again put the memory card the system still can't see it.

The last working version of BIOS is A15 where you can use a memory card reader.

My OS: Windows 10 Pro (x64)

Confirmed, with slightly different symptoms.

SD cards are not detected in either Win7 x64 or Win10 x64.

With Win7 x64 having an SD card in the slot would prevent Windows from starting (hung on the "Starting Windows" boot screen animation). Have since installed Win10.

With Win10 x64 it will boot, but does not recognize any inserted cards.

Tried with and without the O2 Micro driver.

Tried various SD cards: Lexar 16gb, Transcend 32gb, Sandisk 2gb.

Of course the card reader is enabled in BIOS.

Config: E7440 i5-4300 8gb Windows 10 Home 64-bit BIOS A17

I got the information from technical support that the BIOS version A18 will fix memory card reader and a new bios has come out in January.

Add me to the list! I had my motherboard replaced under warranty today and it had A14 installed. So, it worked great when the tech left. I upgraded to A17 and it stopped working right away! I tried A16 and it did not help. I downgraded to A15 and it worked like a charm. unfortunately, A17 fixed some other issues so I really need A18. This is silly. Why is it taking dell so long? DELL, ARE YOU LOOKING AT THESE MESSAGES??
