The most likely problem is an internal battery. This is a fairly small battery, similar to a watch battery. It should be accessible from one of the panels that unscrew on the bottom of your laptop.

My laptop battery not charging


First thing to do would be to try replacing the battery. If the problem persists there may be a problem with the charging circuitry in the laptop itself.
If you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

My thinkpad 600x boots but has no OS and it has two errors: one about the battery: error 173 and one about the internal clock: error 163 what can i do to fix this?


It needs a new motherboard battery, usually a CR2032.

Probably accessed via removing a plate of the bottom or the keyboard, best to consult your user manual first.

My latptop's internal clock getting problem after some days its reset to year 2002.


The CMOS battery is responsible for the internal clock. If it automatically resets itself to 2002 (motherboard manufacturing date) then you need to have it replaced (it's really cheap to have it replaced).

What is the slide switch on side of a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600


The slide on/off switch is for your internal wireless card. It must be on if you intend to connect to a wireless network, otherwise you can leave it off to save battery power.

To tell the approximate battery life left on the unit, click on the battery icon next to the clock when you are running on batteries. It will tell you what percentage and the approximate time left of the battery.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya.
