aspire battery won't charge

I have an Acer Aspire 5670 notebook, and I have pulled out my hair trying to get a new battery to charge. Help Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have the latest bios update, but can't find bios update 3309 which is supposed to solve this issue. Running Win XP.

 

Thank you.

when you put the battery in what do you see?

When I press on the battery indicator on the task bar, it comes up saying unknown, charging 0%

ok, try this. First power off the unit> then unplug the unit>take the battery out> Hold the power button down for 30secs> then put the battery back in and plug it up and see if the issue remains.

Already tried that. Didn't work. Tried for 2 minutes too. No luck.
