you just need to download desktop manager. the link to download can be found at BlackBerry Desktop Manager (i will update this with the exact link in a sec). you can go to the last link in my sig to find parts or a repair shop for your device. welcome to the forums

with the installation of DM, it will allow for charging of the device via USB

one last question

the battery bar is empty and red and there is a lightning looking bolt next to it does this mean its charging there is no night flashing or any movement

Lightening bolt means it is charging.
