What "charger"? Is this the mains adapter for a Laptop or have you plugged a charger for another device into a USB port? If it is a USB connection, Windows might detect this as new hardware and try to install it.

Op system? Vista?
type of laptop Lenovo?

if so
install the XP version of the of the lenovo power management utiliy, it should then show up as 'Lenovo ACPI-Compliant Virtual Power Controller' in device manager

What's the relevance of your "click here" - it relates to the HP TouchSmart Notebook.
