Charging IBM R40 Battery

\015 I have a R40 laptop the battery lasts a long time when charged my issue is if i discharge the battery and then connect the power supply the power indicator changes to AC and the battery indicator light stays orange. The on screen display shows 0% charged and will not show a charge even after 24 hours but the battery is charged because i can use laptop on battery for 3-4 hours again. But if i only party use the battery for say an hour then plug it in display shows like 60% charged and then if i leave it plugged in it will charge to 100% and i am good for about 5 hours. Any thoughts? i down loaded the latest battery driver from ibm no difference.\015
