This is a problem I recently went through also, on my Dell Inspirion 1420. What you should do is replace the battery of the laptop, that fixed it for me. Laptop batteries are easy to find and replace, and you almost never have to open up a laptop to replace the battery. Generally you can find the battery on the bottom of the laptop, near the part where the monitor meets the main body of the laptop. Unfortunately, laptop batteries aren't very cheap, usually $50-$100, but I quick searched a replacement battery and found one for $35 for the Toshiba L555 series here, pretty hard to beat, and from a trusted seller too.

Toshiba Satellite A105 hangs when charger is plugged


Toshiba Satellite laptops come with a unique power management software program that regulates the power consumption of your laptop. While this program is often helpful in extending laptop battery time, the program is also known to cause some operational difficulties when software conflicts occur. At some point you may want to change your power options, or remove the program.

Click "Start" and then "Control Panel." Locate the "Toshiba Power Manager" program among the Control Panel icons. Note that this differs from the familiar Windows "Power Options" icon. Open the Power Manager application. If you want to merely modify the current settings, the Power Manager gives you many options to choose from. For maximum battery life, consider setting the Power Manager to put the laptop into various states of "sleep" after so many minutes of inactivity. Select the menu items offered to achieve power savings for the monitor or hard drive, or both. Click "Save Settings" and exit the program. Remove the Power Manager if your laptop is prone to "freezing" or seems to have difficulty "waking up" from a Sleep or Hibernation mode. Go to "Start" and "Control Panel" and choose "Add Remove Programs." Navigate to the "Toshiba Power Saver" listing. Click "Remove." When Windows is done scrubbing the program from the system, click "OK" and exit Control Panel. Reboot. The Windows on-board power management program will now take precedence over this function.

Hi. I have a HP Compaq 6820S, Intel Pentium T7250, 2 Gb RAM, 160 Gb HDD, i have a problem, Laptop won't charge battery. I let the laptop in sleep mode, around 7 days, when i come back, battery was 0%,...


try a new battery yet? (brand new fresh)
sleep mode. so you want it to run for 7 days in sleep.
ive no idea how long this laptop runs in sleep
and hibernate is longer.
no idea at all.
you do know that the speed features are programmable
right?
including what chips do and do not go to sleep'
like USB ports, WIFI, and all wake on , features. like Ethernet chip.
and more.
why not just turn it off, and let the battery last longer..
this mode sleep kills batteries faster. way faster.
leave it plugged in all the time to the wall pack.
so the battery never drains unless you need to use it, on battery.

How do i charge my ipod


To charge the battery, choose one of the options below:
  • Connect the device to your computer (not your keyboard) using the included cable to charge the battery and sync. Your computer must be turned on and not in sleep or standby mode. If the device is connected to a computer that's not turned on or is in sleep or standby mode, the battery may drain.
  • Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a power outlet using the included cable and a USB power adapter to charge the battery.
An icon in the upper-right corner of the screen shows battery charging status. If you charge the battery while syncing or using iPhone or iPod touch, it might take longer to charge.
Note: If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged into power and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed, the computer may go into standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPhone or iPod touch may not charge.
Important: If iPhone or iPod touch is very low on power, it may display one of the following images indicating that the device needs to charge for up to ten minutes before you can use it. If the device is extremely low on power, the display may be blank for up to two minutes before one of the low-battery images appears. If you don't see the white charging or plug icons, your iPhone or iPod touch may be connected with a FireWire cable. Disconnect the FireWire cable and connect the iPhone or iPod touch to a USB cable or dock.
that should be everything you need to know about charging an iPod Touch. If you require further assistance please feel free to followup with additional comments. If this solution solved the problem please feel free to rate it. Thanks and have a great day-Midwest-Tek
