Show us your circuit, how you wired up the dickson charge pump?

Sounds like the gharge pump is drawing too much current for the arduino (or pc if usb powered) to handle. You probably need a seperate power supply for the charge pump.

I hooked up a different power supply...The board is working but the pump is not..

That's still good advice..... Nobody can help if they don't know what you've done. Also post your code.... Edit: Assuming there is code- were you just using the Arduino 5v as your "battery"?

My hovercraft is full of eels.

No PMs for help please.
DO NOT power servos from Arduino 5V: give them their own power and connect the grounds.
