Many laptops do not have enough power resources to keep an mp3 player charged/properly functioning. To test, you will need to close all running programs, and devote the laptop solely to the function of charging the mp3 player (the laptop will need to be plugged into a wall outlet even if it has its own battery). This is not a guaranteed fix, but it is your only hope with a laptop. You will not experience the same problem on a desktop unless that mp3 player's hardware itself is faulty.

Why won't my lights work


It sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery. Fit a new battery remember to undo negative lead first to remove and fit positive lead first to refit the battery. When the new battery is filled please charge it using less than 1 Amp DO NOT use a car charger or try to jump start it. Your new battery should show 12.5 to 13 volts on a meter for a 12 volt system and 6.3 to near 7 volts for a 6 volt system. Start the scooter and check across the battery terminals your meter should show about 14.4 V for 12 volt battery and about 7.5 V for a 6 Volt one. No voltage increase means your charging circuit is not working. Either the alternator or rectifier(regulator) are not operating correctly. Worst case scenario is both units dead.

Find a store that sells laptop parts or go online look on amazon or next tag also when you get your new battery plugin your laptop charge your new battery so it has a full charge.Then when it is done charging unplug it and use the battery until it dies, then plug it in again to recharge it never leave it plugged in if it is fully charged for long periods.if you are using your laptop at home you can pull out the battery and use it when its plugged into the wall this will help to extend your battery life just make sure you have a fully charged battery before leaving your house. always unplug your your laptop when its is fully charged this will also extend your battery life for along time

The power receptors next to the battery sound like toast. Try running the computer off of just the charger (correct one) with no battery. If this works, you need a new battery. If this doesn't work, your computer needs a new power supply. Hope this helps =]

How long to charge cordless battery for Oster Power Pro Ultra


Usually it is recommended that you leave it plugged in to charge a minimum of 12 hours before you even use it. Then, once you unplug it to use it, keep it completely unplugged and use it until it dies completely and shuts itself off. Then, and ONLY then, plug it back in and charge it again for a minimum of 8 to 12 hours and do not use it while it is charging! Once you've passed the 8-12 hours, you can unplug it again and start using it again. After you do that, you should be able to use it for a few days before it dies and you will have given the battery a "memory". After that, you don't really need to have it plugged in more than a few hours to fully charge after being drained. It's always best to let the batteries fully drain and shut off before plugging back in to preserve it's life.

"Plugged in, not charging", Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527, under Windows Vista Home Premium


It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket.
This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.

Battery appears charged, but computer will only run when plugged in


does your battery have one of those charge indicator panels on bottom?

also, it's possible that the connection from battery to the internals is shot..if that's the case, then you're looking at a major motherboard swap

It's also quite common for the poorly designed power pin/socket to fail. the day in and day out tugging and pulling on the cable does the damage.

Here's a video that talks about the problem and a cure. . .
