    My Sansa e140 was playing fine until it suddenly stopped. Now when I turn it on, it brings me to the language menu. When I choose English, I get the following message:
    "Not enough memory. Connect to PC and delete 4M of songs for Sansa system file."

    My computer recognizes that a device has been connected, but when I click on the drive, it tells me the drive is inaccessible and that there is an "I/O device error."

Here is information I used from another user of this product who had this issue

Here is a fix I got from Sandisk support:

Let's try this: take the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After that, connect it to your computerits dead with no special reason - 1.gif (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer?

Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on.


Now, another thing I found that worked once, was to remove the battery, hold the power button for 5 seconds, then replace battery. The unit powered up after that.

Instead of updating your bios try removing the bios battery and then wait for about 5 mins then plug it back in to reset it. Most often that fixes the problem faster and easier.

i believe the Nokia phone is not dead but the battery of the Nokia phone is dead.
you have to replace the battery of the phone with a new working battery.

Hi there.. I believe that you are one of those very active and busy type people who are always on the move. The general reason I believe that you fone is behaving this way is because you do not allow your fone to charge properly, therefore limiting the lifespan of the battery.

My advice: -try and drain you battery dead until you are unable to turn it on at all.
- secondly,charge your fone till it says fully charged.
-thirdly, when using your fone you can either 1). repeat the previous steps and this time drain it by playin music or 2). try using it with caution..
-lastly, next time you decide to charge your fone make sure it is dead/off till you charge it.It should last you a good 2days if all goes well.

These steps can help you prolong the life of your battery and save you $50 to buy a new one..

It seems i have over charged my sand disk player so right now when i switch it on it says battery too slow and then it shut down it self, please i need a help to this problem .


Hi teddyabout,

There are few reasons your SanDisk Player is acting up. Here are some things to try out.

Make sure the HOLD switch is turned off before you power up your player. This will sometimes cause errors in booting.

If that doesn't work you can try a soft-reset by holding the power button down for 15 seconds then try turning the player on normally again.

Finally, if you are brave enough, you can take the battery out of the player to force a complete reset of the player and battery. This is done by taking the four screws out of the back of the player and removing the battery. After 30 seconds, put the battery back (be sure the it is seated properly) and replace the screws.

Good luck

Its dead with no special reason


try pressing the down button followed by the power button. the idea is this unlocks "reserve battery" so the player can tell you what the problem is.

Battery for Compac Armada M700


Hello Felcen:

It could be just a coincidence...but lets try a few things...

Remove the battery and unplug from the wall. Hold the power button on...and then plug back into power...after 8 seconds release the power button. Once your computer boots to desktop...shut down...and replace the battery.

Changing the harddrive should have anything to do with teh battery...

See if your battery starts charging after this trick.

Let me know and good luck my friend.
