   On my Starmax (desktop), if the battery that holds information like
time and other parameters goes bad it takes the whole system with it;
removing the battery itself remedies the problem.

   But on the laptop side, I have an old Toshiba 486 laptop whose
batteries no longer hold much of a charge and I literally will have to
re-start on and off for like 15 minutes or so; eventually it starts up
all the way but before that it goes a little and then just stops, sort
of progressing to a full boot up with each attempt.

    Note that the above machine *is* plugged in. A new laptop battery
would probably remedy this situation but they're a little over my
budget especially since I have no need to use the laptop right now.
