Toshiba battery dead

I'm running Sid on an 2805-S302

I have a laptop and the battery has been dying.  It's been where I
can only have it off power for a few minutes before it dies.  The
laptop has a LED that is green when the battery is fully charged and
yellow when partially charged.  Now, the LED is not lit at all and if
I unplug the power the laptop dies immediately.

I was planning on buying a new battery, but I'm now worried that
there's something wrong with the laptop -- and I don't want to spend
a good chunk of cash if the laptop charging system is not working.

So, does anyone know what the LED not lighting might mean, and also
is there any way to monitor the charging system from the OS?  toshset
doesn't see to provide anything.
