The computer works fine plugged in without the battery and the battery its self is showing charged at 80% but if remove the power cord the computer shuts down immediately. I've put the old battery back in a it charges fine, and the computer will still run if I remove the power cord. Any suggestions on what I can do to "jumpstart" my new battery?
