This is a commom problem.
Problem with power socket on the laptop, it may caused by a dry solder joint and needs to be resoldered or the power socket may be faulty and needs to be replaced. Either way to fix this, it requires the laptop to be dismantled to get at this power socket. Get a quote to repair, as it could cost a few dollars.
If it is a faulty cord/plug on the power adapter, this can be checked with a multi-meter. When you connect the multi-meter probes to the power plug the voltage should be steady and the reading should be slightly higher then the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the power adapter. If the voltages fluctuates as you wriggle the plug then you have a broken wire in the plug. Replacing the plug would not cost much.

My laptop pluged in but not charging


There could be many problems with your laptopFirst, check if your laptop was plugged into a surge protector (ex. Power Strip). If it wasn't, a surge could destroy the charger, power supply, or even motherboard.
Second, try a different charger. If it was the charger that broke, then try a different one. I have had this happen to many off my computers over the years.
If it is fried, take it to Staples, or a local computer shop. I would always recommend plugging computers into surge protectors. Good luck!

Wont turn on, plug it into comp reads...not enough free space for music DB please free 30MD. my computer does not recognize there is even anything pluged in. the clip says its connected and charged. how do...


Slide the Clip's power switch to the "lock" position, then hold down the rewind button (looks like "<<") while plugging your Clip into the computer. You should then see your Clip show up in Window Explorer as a "removable disk". Right-click on the Clip in Windows Explorer and select "Format". Don't select "Quick Format", and be SURE you're doing this to your Clip, not one of your computer's disks.

After the format is done, unplug the Clip, plug it back in and verify that you no longer get the "not enough free space" message.

My laptop wont charge


Sounds like to me you may have a bad battery. I would do a search for your model number for a battery. It is showing being plug in that means your charger is working, but your battery not taking no charge.

I have the same problem, sometimes, if I plug it up to the computer, with usb port and press the computer option, keep pluging and unpluging over and over it will reset and starts working again. But it still fails, It may have something to do with the internal battery being weak. Even thought it shows charged, may not be able to supply the current required to start the hard drive.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on


I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.
