    Might need a new, working battery to keep it running. I could also be an AC adapter that is not supplying enough power.

    Another, though somewhat less likely problem, might be a broken power jack on the laptop. Does it feel loose/broken if you jiggle the jack? When you plug it in do the laptop's charging lights come on? Do they blink if you try to move the jack around?
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Hit on Faststone pic viewer... the new scan comes up in
    a window and you can then increase saturation, colour etc with the faststone software..... best I ve found so far !
