SD card reader not accessing cards

I've been unsuccessfully trying to solve this problem for a while now so I thought I'd ask the experts. I have an SD card slot on my Omen that quit reading or at least displaying SD cards, so I got a USB card reader and that worked as a substitute for a while, then it quit displaying. When the card in either device is inserted, there is an audible response that would seem to indicate that its recognized, but it doesn't show up as a drive. Device manager show's it as hardware, but it doesn't show up in disk manager or the file structure and can't be accessed. This is ALL SD cards not just a particular card. Maybe this isn't the right place to ask, but I thought maybe there's some code or path or folder that got mangled in some way. Anyway, if you have any ideas or experience with this, any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Try it on a different pc to figure out which component is bad. Also check with the hardware manufacturer in case a driver is required for their hardware.
