I bought a new battery for my laptop a week ago and it worked fine up until last night when it wouldn't boot up. I plugged in the power lead and it booted but upon booting the battery status indicator shows "not present" even though it most definitely is.
dmesg | grep battery
[ 0.412399] ACPI: Deprecated procfs I/F for battery is loaded, please retry with CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS_POWER cleared [ 0.412411] ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT1] (battery present) [ 0.660147] [Firmware Bug]: battery: (dis)charge rate invalid. [ 0.660207] ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT1] (battery present)

So I'm a little confused as some things are telling me its there and charging and others are not. Either way the battery is no longer holding charge because if I pull the power lead it turns off immediately.
