The WW series uses a battery pack with 3 AA batteries, located right under the top cover. If you have never replaced these the pack is probably corroded and be cleaned with a nail file.... or even Coke if you want to remove it.

When things are clean and dry replace the cells with new ones and plug the pack back in.

Sorry to tell you but the memory is gone forever. In the future, replace the batteries when the power to the TW is ON, only was IBM lets you do that.

Dell mini pc running low on mem. can't remove any programs because i haven't loaded any other then the os.what is taking up my mem

You can look at what is taking up memory by pressing CTRL+ ALT + DEL and then selecting Task manager from the bottom.

In task manager open the processes tab, now on the top if you press on MEMORY, the programs get sorted by what is using the most memory, if you click again they get sorted in the other what is using the least memory.

Now you can see and turn off a program if its taking up too much memory, and if you don't need the program.

to close a program click on it, and then on the bottom click on end process.

if you need futher help let me know

My laptop is extremly slow and it won't hold a charge longer than 15 minutes, it's a 3 year old toshiba. What can i do?

Obviously, your battery has degraded. You will have to purchase a new battery. And you can remove old programs that you dont use any more to free up space. Defragment the Hard disk to improve performance. Remove unwanted programs from startup. This will improve the speed of your PC

Some personal WW have a reprint feature top L. hand key (RE -PRT) in green. This will only reprint what you have just typed. To get a true memory you need a WW 5.6.30,etc.
