Won't charge

If your device won't take a charge, make sure there is no lint or dust in there as this can interfere with the connection and your device will not charge. You can clear it by blowing or use a magnifying glass and a needle. But be very careful, and make sure nothing is plugged in before checking.

battery won't charge

Are the specs the exact same , DC volts, Milliamps, on the replacement? Some aftermarket batteries don't work with your laptop. Was the replacement purchased at a shop? Return it. The contacts on the batteries don't match the laptop connections and thats the reason for not ID'ing and Charging. That said, in the BIOS do you have a Battery Learning section?

My nc6400 won't power on even when connected to the power cord

test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating

also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE SATA

MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty if its a flat ribbon 40pin ide

this will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure dust free connections

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have a finishing point so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure the CPU has a secure dust free seating with thermal paste

make sure your ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope this helps

mouse cursor wont move

If it is a regular mouse, check the prongs and make sure none are not bent. If the are bent they won't make a connection. If it is a USB mouse try using another USB port. If you have access to another computer connect your mouse to it to make sure the mouse is not faulty.

I have had my iphone less than a week- i did not expect it to have problems so soon. .... i have iphone 2g my battery ran out now it wont recharge or turn back on? .... but it doesn't turn on, it only vibrates when I try to charge it. .... and showing apple but not going on.i keep start my iphone till bettery dead. ...

If your iPhone's battery runs very far down, the iPhone won't turn on. That's because it's using its remaining battery life to preserve your data and settings.So, your iPhone could be refusing to turn on because its battery doesn't have enough juice. In that case, plug your iPhone into a wall charger or into your computer (plug it directly into the computer; some USB ports on keyboards don't have enough power to charge iPhones). Let it sit for 10-20 minutes. If it was low on battery and needed a charge, when it's got enough juice to power the screen, it will turn on and show you its charging status, starting with the red battery icon.During this process, you may also want to make sure there's no lint packed into your cable or the iPhone's dock connector. This isn't a hugely common problem, but a lot of pocket lint could interfere with the iPhone getting a charge.
