    We'd sure like to help but you've given us absolutely nothing to work with such as Make, Model, pictures of the problem, etc., for details about the device. Such information is critical for hardware identification then later details would need to be provided if questions involve the Operating System.

    Do you mean the longish skinny slot? If so it's probably for an SD/SDHC camera memory card, useful for transferring pictures to the computer. Some Desktops have it on the front.

    Probably? What else could it be? I've never seen anything like it, and then there's that weird icon.

    I'm at a loss here

    I'd agree that slot being a memory card slot for SD cards

    A memory card slot indeed. Maybe just for the very small cards.
