Press straight down on the card with a fingernail.  It is spring-loaded and should come right out once you push down and let it back up.

I tried to do that but couldn't get at the card, even after poking at it with a nail file. I think it was jammed in there when I bought the tablet already. Guess I'm stuck. Thanks though.

Someone may have inadvertantly pushed the card in upside down.

 

Perhaps tweezers may help removing it?

Re: micro sd card removal from slate7?

Thanks for the suggestion, but I tried that already. The space is much too small to get tweezers in there. However, the good news for me is that for some reason it only looked like there was a card in there plus it seemed the specs were telling that there was one.  An HP worker messaged me that they don't come with sd cards inserted. I tried putting in a new card to see if it would work and it did!

Thanks though and all the best.

It has to go in deeper than you think.  You will feel it click, then when you release it will latch and remain in the slot.

I have to use a letter opener to eject the card.  Fingernails won't do it unless you have long nails.  Try a slim plastic knife, maybe.

Yes, thanks, I do the same thing, sometimes with a nail file
