I have a Dell D600 laptop and just put a brand new battery in it. However, the new battery is not charging and the battery light still flashes green 3 times and then flashes red once, then green 3 times, and then red once, on and on. I know that the battery is good because I just purchased it. I have tried several times to reseat the battery, however I can't get the laptop to recognize it and recharge it. What do you recommend?
