The icon means that the iPod is low on battery and needs to be charged. Just plug it into your computer and leave it charging over night.

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.

Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.

Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).

Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.

Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.

Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.

hope this helps

Cant open my hard drive in my laptop

Locate the power cable and USB cable that came with your hard drive.

Connect cables to the appropriate locations on the back of the hard drive.

Sometimes a USB cable doubles as the power source, so you might not need a wall outlet to power the device.

Turn on your computer and allow your operating system time to load before continuing.

Plug the hard drive into the power outlet if necessary, but wait on powering up the device.

Connect the USB cable to the computer while the hard drive is in the "Off" position.

If the USB cable doubles as the power source, the device might turn itself on once connected.

Turn on the hard drive and wait until the hardware has been detected by the operating system. A message should pop up that lets you know new hardware has been detected.

Click on the "Start" menu and go to "My Computer."

Notice all your disk drives are listed in this window. The external hard drive should be visible, and holding the mouse cursor over the location will help you locate the correct drive.

Right click on the location of the drive, and move the cursor to "Open" or "Explore" and click.

Hope this helps

My I pod stopped working

How old is the battery ipod batteries can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing

If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device.

If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.

If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked. When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds.
If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.

If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod.
Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again.
hope this helps

WD Mybook I TB hard drive won't power up

It could be the power adapter but you'll need to verify that the wall outlet or power strip you have it plugged into actually has power. If it's a power strip make sure that it is turned on and has power and also plug the adapter into a different outlet on the strip as individual outlets can go bad or have a bad connection.

Using Windows Vista Suddenly can't see WD MyBook 500G

I had a problem with MY Book and I found out that if you plug the drive into a power strip it doesn't receive enough power, so it doesn't show up on Vista, but if you turn everything off and then plug the My Book directly into a wall socket, Vista will see it and put an icon in the My Computer area.
