[NTLK] PC Card Problem

After my MP2000u was stolen late in 2000 I was only able to get a replacement this year. I have a nice MP2100 and all is well - almost.

The problem is misbehavior in both PC Card slots. Memory cards are not recognized at all, and a Megahertz modem card is reported to be a memory card that can't be reformatted because it is write protected.

I can send the unit in to be replaced, but if this is something that I can fix I would rather do that (now that I have a MP again I don't see how I got by without it). I don't think opening it up is a good idea for me, but I wondered if a deep reset would might do the job. With a current backup I don't think I can do any damage to my data or the messagepad, but I thought I would see if anyone thinks this has any chance of helping.

If not a deep reset, are there any other suggestions for a fix?
