Laptop Battery

I have just purchased a new laptop battery but it will not charge.
I get no indicator light to show it is charging; the balloon tooltips show the computer is on ac power and when I open the power meter it shows "battery not present".
Any advice?

Which make & Model Laptop? I read somewhere that some laptops now have a switch so that the battery facility can be either on or off. This means that a battery can be disabled to stop the AC Power continually "topping up" which ruins the battery life - just a thought. (There is a battery in there isn`t there?)
