Plugged into the computer does necessarily charge it. Especially if it is trying to go into USB Drive mode. If it shows up as a USB drive in your host computer, you need to eject it to charge it, but it may be too discharged to detect that you ejected it.

It is software in the kindle computer that controls battery charging, and that does not necessarily work right if your kindle is too discharged to start that software and get the charging controller chip into the correct mode. And do not trust the charging LED either -- it is software-controlled.

It really helps to use a wall charger, even if just a low-power one from a cell phone.
