I took apart my Toshiba laptop and am trying to take out the battery on the motherboard. What does it look like? The one that I found that looks like a watch battery has a silver holder hooked to it and wont budge. Is that it? How do I get it out?

You will have to open up your laptop and look on the motherboard. The CMOS battery looks like a watch battery it is silver and round and is usually covered by a rubber blue sleeve. I hope this helped solve your problem.
ok i found a couple more things...apparently you dont have to remove the battery.. I found this site that tells you two "jumpers" (solder squares) C88 i believe under the network card. But if you follow this link and follow the directions it will get you going again.
I don't know exactly at what stage you are at and i hope i didn't cause any trouble but this normally is how we take care of this problem. Unless once in a blue moon we come across one like this.
Open the CPU casing. After that you will see a silver battery on the motherboard. Remove the battery using a flathead screwdriver. Be careful though. Wait about 5 mins then plug it back in. If that does not work you will need to download the manual for your motherboard then look for the jumper setting for resetting the motherboard. You will have to set the jumper to reset
Okay, lets troubleshoot this:
1)Does your laptop run on battery alone ?
yes )test your jacks continuity to the motherboard using a continuity tester or Digital Multimeter.
a)test between the center contact and the motherboard.
b)test between the outside metal cover of the jack ,and the motherboard.
c)If either of these fails continuity,replace the jack.
2)does your laptop now power up on AC ?
No)Try the BIOS upgrade.
