My baby!

Isidore is fine. I borrowed Mr B******'s power cord and powered him up and now he seems to be running correctly. So the problem, it seems, is all in some part of the chargey thing. No fear of surges or other brain damage from his time in a coma.

Whew.

Update: Well, I've now discovered that he won't run on battery power and will only work when directly plugged into the wall. Boo hoo. I don't know if he just needs a new battery or if it's something worse than that, but... well, I'm not as worried as I once was.

hmmm, I don't know what might be the problem but it does sound like a battery issue. I'm sure this goes without saying but you should backup anything important . . . and that's due in the next couple of weeks!

If the charger isn't working then it will make the battery discharge (won't charge back up). I suggest you take out the battery and put in one that you know works (Mr. B*****'s?) and if that doesn't work you will know it is the charger. If his battery does work then it is your battery that is bad.

Am I dumb, or is it meant to be such that I dont understand?

Um, I don't know. If you don't understand, it refers to an earlier post where I talked about having problems with my laptop charging.
