You leave your computer on all night just to charge a battery?  Most computers ( and yours may not fit this category) use several hundred watts just to run, which adds a lot to an electricity bill, not to mention greenhouse gases etc.  Get yourself a proper set of rechargables and their battery charger?

Sounds like the battery may have come loose in the back, so its not charging.

Take the 4 screws out, remove the battery. The put the battery back in and try charging it.

Best of Luck.

My sansa e250 wont charge all the way

Well ... i will show you different way to recharge any plear with USB recharge options...

Now... first sorry for my english but... iam from Bulgaria ...
second: you'll need a adaptor from GSM mobile with 5 or equivalent voltage output.Next step: remove part of cover cable on USB cable on mp3/4 and search for red cable it is "+" split with plus on the adaptor of GSM, next ... "-" it must be arround all cables on mp3's USB cable, split with "-" on GSM adaptor. Isolate fine and when you connect GSM adaptor into contact and USB cable into mp3 .. the mp3 will charge fine! Its possible and in manual of SANSA is writen! :) I try and successed!

congratulations - spellsingero, Bulgaria
