If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
This is WORKED FOR ME!--->I turned off my computer than
unplugged cable and took out battery, held down power button for 1-2mins
and than put everything back in (battery and charger) and tried to
start it...the screen was still black. I than turned it off again, than
pressed ESC, while holding down ESC I pressed and held power button
until it briefly turned on and back off. Than I let go of both the
buttons and pressed power back on and VOILA the screen came back on.
Make sure your charger isn't loose, and than you're aren't surging too
much power through the outlets-sometimes these can make the screen black
Hope this helps others out there, I have an old Toshiba Satellite running on Windows Vista
First, reset the clock to 0:00 hours. The instant the clicking stops, pop out the battery. The second hand stem should be at 0:00 hours. The front cover can only be removed from the bottom. Put both thumbs at the bottom of the font cover and push inward, but not too forcefully (Junghans stopped selling replacement covers shortly after dropping the product line and they are nearly impossible to find). The center should lift up enough to slide a thin credit/promotion/gift card under the center tab on the bottom. Then work the card up either slide to disengage the other four tabs. The five tabs are located at the bottom center, one each on both straight sides alligned with the top of the digital display, one at 7.5 minutes, and the last one at 52.5 minutes. That is easy part. Now comes the hard one
You then need to glue the second hand back onto its stem. Superglue (cyanoacrylate based) works best. The second hand must be attached perfectly level or it could scrape the cover, the clock face, and the other hands as it rotates on a tilt. Practice a few times before applying the glue. You will notice that the socket on the second hand fits the stem very loosely. Once you are ready to glue, apply one drop of superglue on the second hand socket and mount it on the centermost stem and hold it perfectly still and in proper alignment and steady for a minute or so for the glue to set. Once the glue dries, put the battery in and let it run long enough to determine if the second hand is in correct alignment.
Remove the battery again. Make certain the clock face is completely free of dust and dirt before reattachment of the cover. Insert the cover from the top down snapping the five tabs into place. It may be necessary to reverse the removal process. Then you can reinsert the battery.
The process worked for me when mine was accidentally knocked onto the carpet and the second hand was detached from the force of the impact. In fact, I can no longer tell which one I performed the repair on.
Phone, you need a new one, fatal error, means something inside of your phone is fried. Charger, are you sure the outlet is good for electronics, sometimes the outlet is a dud after a while, even in newer homes, that is a possible problem, or you're getting the wrong charger, sometimes there isn't enough volts, or too many and can ruin yur battery, if you would like the perfect charger, google it, and figure out the perfect charger for your phone.
Then its the motherboard inside the phone where the charging port connects. It costs about 150-200 to fix unless you have sprint insurance. This happens if the phone is accidentally dropped JUST wrong still plugged into the charger, or if the charger is taken out JUST wrong and sideways or crooked. On a plus side, it is a common thing for a lot of phones and it is fixable by a technician.
I assume that you have your charger plugged in as long as you use the laptop...
There are very minimal chances o the battery having been damaged, since the casing on the inspiron 8200 is quite sturdy.. i suggest you get the charge socket (the socket that leads to the main wall electricity outlet) from a qualified technician...
If you do not have either a manufacturer warranty or extended warranty from the retailer use it now. Contact them. Avoid telling them that you dropped the computer...you will void a manufacturer warranty. If you don't have either option then you can continue portability with an external laptop battery. They tend to be heavy, but they tend to provide 5 or more hours of portable use. The extended battery plugs into the same socket as your regular external power supply.

I had a similar problem with my 15" 1.33GHz powerbook G4. My problem was I couldn't connect to a network right away or at all, or wouldn't properly reconize the card (didn't drop it).
I solved it by removing the airport card from my PowerBook and putting it back into my G4. it should be in the same location. it's underneath the battery pack. 1. power off your G4 2. remove battery pack 3. there is a latch on the right side (if the charger port is facing down), open it 4. pull back plastic cover tab and gently remove the antenna plug from the airport. 5. pull the plastic tab, until the airport card is removed, keep out for 30+ seconds to ensure it erases any corrupt log file on card it's self. 6 place airport card into the slot again, fully inserting it, it should go 1/8" - 1/4" into your powerbook 7. plug in the antenna plug back into your G4's airport(it should click 2x(very lightly)), flip plastic tab back over top the antenna cord, close you latch. 8. place battery back into your G4 9. plug computer in, turn on and it should work if not then there is something wrong with the airport card reader, which i don't think it's the case here..
