Why my TOSHIBA L505 laptop is not charging battery?

I have my laptop for one and a half year, and yesterday I noticed, that
my battery is not charging. Laptop runs ok when it's plugged, but
without it I can't start it. And when I unplug it, it will immediately
shutdown. BIOS is v2.40 = upgraded. I didn't do anything unusual with
it. Maybe the new battery is the solution, but still I think it's
another problem because my battery used to last for approx. 45 min! Also
I checked the battery, and it's not physically damaged (no corrosion
etc.) = looks and fits good as new. Reinstalling the battery in Device Manager didn't work. Oh, and when I look on the tray icon
of the battery it says "AC plugged, is not charging battery, consider
battery replacement, 0% charged", battery on the trey image is empty and
red crossed. Also when the laptop is of and plugged battery charging LED
indicator doesn't light. It lights for approx. 2 seconds after I turn on the computer.
Does anyone know a solution to this problem?
