Zebadiah Nelson, I would start replacing the Battery first. It is an inexpensive and relative easy fix. Once you changed your battery, you at least have a starting point. After that I would look at the dock connector, and the harddrive. But start with the battery, of course only my 2 cents. Good Luck
