Dell Inspiron 1564 Battery monitor was giving me...

Hello, my Dell Inspiron 1564 was giving me a notification that my battery was "reaching the end of its usable life although charging normally and should be replaced soon". So, I bought a new laptop battery (generic) through Amazon. Well, the new battery does not charge like a new battery should and now I'm getting the same notification again.
My brother mentioned that I might have to reset a battery setting or something. I tried powering up the laptop w/o a battery, shutting down, and then plugging in the new battery and powering up again---nothing. I also uninstalled Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and reinstalled and nothing changed.
Your help is appreciated. Thank you.
