Is your card in the card reader?

Chrome and the eID card do not work well together. Try using a different browser for this, for example Internet Explorer. If you still prefer to use Chrome, try the workaround that has been developed by the eID team.
Do you use Firefox?
If you use Firefox, first install the eID add-on. For more information about using Firefox, read ‘Firefox settings for eID’.
