My sansa wont connect to my laptop and now its dead, and wont turn on although i have it plugged in.

what do i do? 

Reset the device (unplugged) by sliding the power switch to the ON position, and hold it in this position for 15 seconds.

This will reset the device.

Try plugging in again and see if all is well.

If your Fuze is discharged, it’s possible there isn’t enough current from your laptops USB port, to charge it, or this current is turned off when your laptop is in sleep mode or turned off.    If you have a desktop computer ,  leave the Fuze plugged in the back USB ports (while the computer is on).
