Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

System shuts off when USB device is plugged in

When I go to plug in my USB cord for my rechargeable battery, my system shuts down and gives me three red rings. I noticed that the light on my power brick is orange instead of green, but the console plays normally when my USB plug isn't plugged in. Could this be causing my prblems with my USB device? And if not what is going on... I don't want to have to keep buying batteries, that's why I bought the rechargeable pack in the first place. Oh , by the way, my recharge pack was working fine for 3 months before this started happening. This started after I rearrangd my room and hooked everything back up.

    Thanks. I mean, I can use regular batteries, I just don't want I play A LOT so it's why I bought the rechargeable in the first place. I also sent an email about this to the Microsoft tech site as well. Hopefully they can give me some info other than "send it in and you'll get it back in 6-8 weeks". I'll post an update and any solutions they give me.

Maybe you made something loose in the 360 when you moved it. The best thing would be to call microsoft at 1-800-4MYXBOX (I think that's the number but you might want to check and inform them of your problem and they will see what they can do for you. I hope this helped solve your problem.

Battery will not charge on toshiba satelite x205-s9349

Step 1:
Which operating system ?
There are a number of things you should try before you give up and replace the battery. Let's start with the simplest. Lets call it the Battery Reboot. Shut down the PC, unplug it, remove the battery, plug in the laptop, boot up, shut it down again, unplug it, insert the battery, plug it in, and reboot. Did it work? Oh, well. It was worth a try. The battery's driver may have become corrupt. If so, uninstalling and reinstalling should fix the problem. But first, just to play it safe, create a restore point. Once you're safe, open Device Manager: If you're using Windows XP, click Start, right-click My Computer, and select Properties. Click the Hardware tab, then the Device Manager button. In Vista or Windows 7, just click Start, type device manager, and press ENTER. Once you're in Device Manager, expand the Batteries section by clicking the little icon to the left of the word Batteries. Right-click Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and select Uninstall. Verify that that's what you want to do. Do not uninstall any other drivers. clip_image001.jpg Once that driver has disappeared, click the Action menu at the top of the window and select Scan for hardware changes. This will bring the driver back. If that doesn't solve your problem, try draining the battery. Doing this too often will strain the battery and shorten its lifespan. But in an extreme situation like this, it might help and it can't hurt. But how do you do it ? Windows won't let you run the battery all the way down. When it falls below a certain percentage, Windows automatically hibernates itself and powers down the computer. Under normal conditions, this is a good thing. But these aren't normal conditions. So here's what you do: Run the PC without AC power until Windows hibernates and shuts down the hardware. Then reboot and go immediately to your BIOS Settings screen. I can't tell you exactly how to get there; it varies with different PC models. If you study the screen as it boots, you'll see a message telling you to press a certain key "for setup." Press that key. This will bring up a text-based full-screen menu system. You don't have to do anything with it. just leave it on that way until the PC shuts down. Then plug in the AC power and boot to Windows. If the battery still isn't recharging, I've got bad news for you: Your battery is as dead as John Cleese's parrot. It happens. They don't live forever. Y ou have three options: You can buy a replacement from the manufacturer, search online for a better price, or accept that you now have an AC-only laptop. If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

My philips gogear vibe wont turn on

Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.

Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.

If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.

Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."

This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.

Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.

Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.

Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.

Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.

Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.

If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.

hope this helps

I have dell c840. Suddenly only the left most light of the three lights gets orange when power is switched on and then there is no activity and screen remains blank. Bty light when plugged in also remain...


shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer

Shuts down when driving, looses power, and goes to battery

If your Nuvi's battery is low, and the plug becomes loose, then that may be your problem. If your Nuvi is acting up due to a firmware / system software glitch (common common common), then I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites (if your computer will still recognize it or if you have a memory chip you can pop into a card reader).
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
