Re: what is the slide switch on side of a Toshiba...
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.

Two options, though check your user manual (if you have one...):
1) Many modern laptops work fine on mains power without the battery
installed. So try removing the battery and switching on just with mains
power. And when you switch on, press the on/off switch hard.
2) Many laptops have a reset switch. Sometimes this is somewhere around
the keyboard (you may need a needle - the blunt end!! - or similar to
press it) or possibly under one of the removable covers on the
