help me Acer TravelMate 5735Z battery problem

Specs: N/A
I have a Acer TravelMate 5735Z, which has sat unused for about a year. It would not power up and the battery was drained. Well I finally stopped being lazy and bought an a/c internal jack, which I guessed was the cause of the non power up issue. Took apart the laptop and replaced the jack with one I bought off ebay.
Put it back together and now it works (I am typing this on it) but at the start up screen it says it cannot recognize the battery. I took the laptop apart again to see if there were any loose cables or pinched wires. Plugged a/c adapter in and the charging light came on (not the orange lamp) I walked out of the room and the charging light was off and at start up got the same message.

So after this wall o text, is my Acer TravelMate 5735Z,battery bad or is it the laptop?

buying a new battery would be cheaper than getting the laptop fixed, so try that first.

The battery MAY be beyond the point of holding a charge. I suggest you leave the laptop off but connected to the AC for 12/24 hours. If the battery still isn't recognized then buy another one.
