Sony Notebook PCG-TR5MP

Hi, I had my ipod shuffle charging, I unplugged the ipod from the docking station (without going through 'remove device safely!) and my laptop immediately shutdown. It will not power up, no lights at all. The power adaptor seems fine as the it lights up when plugged in but the laptop will not power up, it seems dead!

The laptop is 4 years old
Any advice

You may have inadvertently killed the power module of the laptop. that has happened to me a couple of times, so far, and repair has always been in the hundreds of dollars. I hope that is not the problem in your case. Have you tried using a universal power supply to make sure that your power supply is not the issue? Anyways, the best of luck to you.

Will a kensington universal docking station work with my sony vaio pcg-7d2l

Yes it should if you are running Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8. You just connect to the unit using a spare USB port on your laptop and a plug-plug USB cable. It has it's own power so you'll need a mains socket. This means you can unplug your laptop and leave any devices charging on the docking station USBs. Your laptop should auto-instal the station. I believe there is a table/support available which combines with this unit. There a varying prices for this unit so look around.
Good Luck

My ipod shuffle (2nd gen) will not charge

If you are using a USB port that has charged the device in the past and works for other devices, and the shuffle is tight in its dock, all you can do it send the shuffle to Apple for a new battery. It is not user serviceable--next to impossible to disassemble without destroying it.

Ipod nano blinks

I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
