Hello lozzaraine, in the future you need to provide more description in your thread title as well as your initial post. People will be more inclined to assist you if they are able to understand what you are needing.
I have renamed your thread and moved it to a more appropriate forum.

Is your card reader internal or external USB?

If it's external, give us an idea on the manufacturer and model name, so we can look up what types of cards are supported.

Have you tried a different sd card?

hi lozzaraine, welcome to TK.

will you remove the sd card from your laptop and go to device manager please, start, right click my computer and then select manage. then select device manager then press the plus sign next to sd host adaptors.

now insert the sd card and you should see the device manager reload if its recognised something connected to the computer.

if you see your card after it has reconnected and it is still not seen in my computer then right click on it and select uninstall in the device manager.
remove the sd card and do a restart, reinsert the sd card and fingers crossed it should reinstall itself and yet again be recognised.
