IPod shuffle killed my laptop! grrr.....

I plugged my iPod into the docking device this morning, and my laptop powered down immediately. I can't get it to boot up. What happened? I realize my bigger problem is the laptop, but I have seen others with similiar problems, but haven't seen any solution, or reason why this has happened.
There was nothing unusual happening today. No power bumps, the iPod was turned off, the laptop was plugged in.
I am perplexed.
Thank you for listening to my whining.

    I went to plug my IPOD Shuffle in to the USB port to recharge. Shuffle was turned off, PC was turned on. Heard a funny sound and my monitor went blank and power button went yellow. Hit another button and it said it was in power save mode-move the mouse or hit a button. Did that with no luck. Tried the on/off switch. Powered the PC down and back up-same thing happened. Tried booting off the install disk from Dell. No joy. I suspect the Shuffle shorted something out but I read that is unlikely via the USB port. It wasn't even fully plugged in. Any ideas?

Here's the laptop explanation - most laptops do not have USB 2.0 ports. When you plugged iPod in, the laptop tried to compensate for this fact by devoting the rest of its system resources to the iPod, causing a shutdown. Make sure you have a USB 2.0 port or card. Also, update the firmware - that can sometimes fix the issue.

Wen i connect my i pod to computer it does not connect


Check to see whether your iPod shuffle is the original stick version or the newer version, which plugs into the iPod dock connector.


Turn your PC on.

The PC needs to be on to transfer music and charge the iPod shuffle.


Place the iPod shuffle in the iPod dock connector if you have the newer version.

If you're using the original version, then plug it directly into a high-power USB port on your PC.


Check the monitor to ensure iTunes has loaded.

This means a connection was established.


hope this helps

How do I re charge battery with electrical plug


To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode). When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

How to delete songs off ipod shuffle 4gb


Just connect it to your dock, plug it into your pc (or mac) boot up itunes, and click in the left pane on your ipod. Then just go down the list and delete what you dont want.

You *do* need to have the dock, and a computer with itunes that the ipod is registered to. If you dont, the ipod will have to be completely erased.

What does the little electrical bolt symbol mean?


this is obviously a power or connectivity issue, check that the device ( your ipod ) is correctly seated into the logitech speaker system, and check the power cables are connected according to the manual which came with the logitech speaker system. 
question u may ask yourself? - does the ipod work as it should on its own? (without non-apple devices/components attached to it) - if it doesnt - take to an apple store or call or seek apple support. 
it sounds like your ipod is low on power from source.
i hope this directs you in the right direction, party on!

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.

IPOD SHUFFLE NOT RECOGNIZED


I had the same problem where my shuffle just turned off as if it ran out of battery power, and when i tried to plug it in the computer it wouldnt recognise it or i would get an unknow device error. I tried many of the 5r as much as i could but didnt work. Then finally yesterday i tried something new. I pluged the ipod into the computer and left it pluged in to the usb port and i noticed that every time i would lift the ipod from the dock (not all the way) that the light would blink green one time. So what i did was i positioned the ipod back on the dock then lifted it until the green light blinked and i turned it on, and it works now, the battery is charged. However i havent tried to plug it back in the computer to see what happens but i can listen to my music now.
