comment How can I determine if my Dell M4600 built-in SD card reader can support SDHC cards?
Thanks - I gave that a try and it appears that I already had that installed, so sadly I saw no improvement.

I am going to guess this reader only supports the SD format. It certainly looks like it. Supposedly sometimes a firmware or driver upgrade can add support, but it appears not in this case.

comment How to make TaskScheduler fail when the task returns result different from 0
This is mind-blowing to me - Task scheduler has all those options for configuring restart of an action in the event that it 'fails', but doesn't even check if an action returns an error code. Makes me wonder what on earth actually constitutes a 'failure' for the Task Scheduler.

OK, I've successfully updated the BIOS to the latest version using the bootable ISO instead of the utility. Fingers crossed this fixes the problem...

Hmm. Assuming I have a Crucial M4 2.5" SSD, the Windows 8 updater doesn't work (it doesn't list any drives). (from here: crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx)

I just saw another question that recommended updating the firmware on the SSD (for a different sounding problem). I will try that.
