First you need to check if there is a problem somewhere. You need to check the battery, the charger and the device itself.
You need to carry out some tests to be able to be sure what the problem is.
First test is the battery, try out a friends well tested battery into the device and power it on, if it comes on, then it means the battery of your device is either weak or dead, try to charge it on another device then power it on to see if it will come on. If it comes on, then the battery is alright and if it does not come on, then it means the battery is bad and you need to replace it.

Next test is for you try out your charger on another device to see if it will charge the device, if it charges the device, then it means it is alright and if it does not charge the device, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

The last test is for you to connect your garmin nuvi to a computer and power it on to see if it will come on. If it does not come on, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or there is an internal problem or something.
After carrying out these tests, you will be able to tell where the problem is from and fix it at the same time.

After carrying out these tests, then you can replace the device if the problem is not from any of these sources, because fixing it will cost you about the price you can get another one.
Hope this information was helpful to you.

My 03 vw beetle died while i was driving it

Let me know when you said died it died completely even after the repairs you did the engine is not cranking or it does? have you checked whether any relays are overloaded and blown? Probably the main engine relay is blown. Also check if the starter motor is burnt too,or any earth wire is not well connected ( tight on the chassis with the engine block)

Engine locked up

That engine would require a complete teardown and rebuild. Pretty expensive when you consider all the new parts required, like for one, possibly a new crankshaft.. After removal, a rebuilder could tell if a new one is required. Yes, pretty you want to spend that much on a '91 model car?

If it were me, a replacement would be a better option. Good luck.

My laptop hs a black screen problem, the laptop will turn on, but the screen will continue to stay black. i do not have money to get a new computer. i only used the laptop for a year, warranty is no...

There are a few reasons for this happening below are the reasons and how to fix them:

1. Your screen has died or

FIX- Replace the screen

2. Your backlight in the actual LCD panel has died

FIX- Replace the screen

3. The LCD inverter has died

FIX- replace the inverter board

4. The graphics card in the laptop has died

FIX. See if the laptop will work using an external monitor (if so remove faulty screen and use as a desktop replacement).

FIX. Buy or aquire another motherboard for your laptop and change them over.

All of these problems are fixable and you can do your self with a bit of "Google" knowledge.

f you do not feel comfortable in doing it yourself then you can take it to a computer repair shop and they will diagnose and fix for you at an extremely inflated price.

N.B. A computer store near me charges $69 for a diagnostic test to tell you what is wrong and then it's $69 per hour after that, as an example they estimate a screen changeover will cost:

$69 for diagnostic test + (Parts cost) + 2Hrs Labour @ $69 p/hr

Total $207 (not including cost of parts)

LCD panels range in cost from a few dollars to some times the cost of a completely new laptop.

Hi... my son has been enjoying playing my Nintendo 64...unfortunately it no longer swithces on...(no power)... has it died or can this problem be repaired?

Well it might just be the fact that it has died on you now so it needs a new motherboard. The motherboard controllers everything that consoles can do so when the main part goes bad thats not good then. I fix dead consoles buy installing a new motherboard.

My battery died while deployed and noone started the SUV no with a new battery it just clicks

If even with a new battery the starter doesn't turn the engine then it's the starter the one that has died, taking the battery with it. You will gonna have to remove it from the car and test it - if it fails don't try to fix it (the parts themselves will cost you more than a refurbished one), just replace it.
