Take your battery off and plug in the AC adapter, turn on your computer. If it works then you need to replace your battery. If it does not, then you need to replace your ac adapter or your dc jack. It's easy enough to test another ac adapter at your local pc shop. If it is the dc jack then it will involve replacing it. If you can solder then you can purchase one locally or order it on the internet and replace it yourself. If you can't solder then you need to have someone do it for you.

Could be a bad battery or charging circuits of motherboard. If laptop boots up when plugged in check under your control panel for power options then look to see if it shows charging. If it shows your charging but the battery doesnt charge then you have a bad battery

First, make sure that if your iTunes version is high enough to fit the version of your iPhone.
About charging, I think it means the output current of your charger is to low to charge and run your iPhone at the same time. This case is most like that, when a iPad 2 link to PC it won't charge when the scree is on.
If you are using digital products frequently, you can try to get a dual USB output external power supple, which hold on 2 type of output current 1A for common cell phone, 2.1 A for iPad, Pad PC and some device which need high charge current

Gateway laptop died. Several times it appeared to reboot only to go black and go off. No fan or lights. How can I fix this myself?


does it show that it is charging from the charging light/power supply? Is there any life left in the battery? is the charger charging the battery? the batteries dont last in laptops usually about a year before the go bad and have to be replaced, Is the charger working? The chargers go faulty all the time, The little plug that plugs into the laptop goes faulty and is a very common fault and doesnt charge/power the laptop, The only thing you can try is another power supply of the same name/model/output voltage and current with the same small plug and polarity or another battery of the same type/model, If you can do this and it doesnt cure your fault it needs looked at by a technician, Hope this helps, If you need more assistance let me know,

My laptop wont charge.when its running low at 10% i plug in my battery adapter it says its plugged in but not charging. I can only use it when my adapter is plugged in and i've left my computer sit shut...


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

My Acer Aspire one dosent charge completely to 100%, it stops at 87%. I have tried letting the battery run down completely, then starting a new charging process. formally it charges to 100%, then 3 days...


Hello.

From your description, your battery is losing its charge and needs to be replaced.

I'm experiencing charging problems with my own system and I noticed that the A/C adapter is very slightly frayed. So, check your A/C adapter as well and be certain that it is charging when you leave your system charging overnight. If you are still experiencing a problem, replace your battery.

Hope this helps.

Hi, the reason it is all black is because the batterys need charging, how old is the Silver battery in it? remember they last only till it goes flat, they unlike the main battery do not charge up you see.

Ipod shows sad face


Aye, my friend had this exact problem before i came along :-)


First: Reset your iPod by quickly moving the lock to lock position then back to unlock position, then hold the menu and center button down till the apple logo comes up. Then you can release the menu and center buttons.

Second: Plug your iPod into a power supply, such as the apple AC adapter. Wait till it shows that its charging. Once it shows that, unplug it, reset your iPod once more, then plug back in.

Third: Keep your iPod plugged in after the second reset for about 15-20 minutes. Come back, unplug it, and use it and see if it continues. If still continuing, plug it back in till its fully charged, or the equivalent.

After that, If that doesnt fix it, try contacting Apple Support here: http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/.

Hope I helped!

Ds power problems


mmm not exactly because if you plug the charger back in it will go orange again, so my guess would be that the ds doesnt stay charged for a long while, you can charge the ds properly when it is shut off but it does needs to be charging at least 8 to 10, you want it to last longer, play a game till the power goes just dnt save anything incase the ds shuts down while saving, otherwise it can corrupt the game and possibly the ds
