Let it charge for an hour or so, then try again.
At least, when the battery is totally empty, I can't boot my Z. Not even with the charger plugged in, but if I leave it charging for an hour, it boots again.

Not sure about the way you try to charge (does it have to turn on the led ?), I use the ac-adaptor.

I have read in other posts that some people have found that some USB ports on some machines won't provide enough juice to charge the Z. Some have said just switching to another port worked. Some had to switch to another PC. USB Hubs may not work either.

Try getting a 5V 1AMP regulated AC adaptor... that's the best you can do. Oh: Check polarity first, it's important.
