The battery is NOT fully charged when you get it new.
Did you give it a chance to charge up fully initially ?

The quickest way is to install the battery, plug in the AC adapter, and DO NOT use the laptop until the battery charging led goes out.

If that doesn't help you may have a problem with the AC adapter's connection, or with the jack the AC adapter plugs into's connection.
