Satellite A665-S6050 will not charge battery

The system shows that the battery is being charged, but in reality it is not. I have replaced the battery with a new one and it charged about 3 cycles and then it stoped charging, although it still says that it is. I normally run the computer with the a/c plugged in and very rarely on battery alone. I have tried deleting the MS ACPI-compliant device driver, shutting down, removing power and battery and holding the Start button down for 30 seconds before re-installing the battery, the power cord and restarting the computer. No change. It runs ok on a/c power, but dies when the cord is removed. I have also cleaned the contacts on both the battery and the computer interface. Any suggestions? I also have one of the original Satellite computers (Win 95) which still works on the original battery (though much slower, ha!) and I have never had any problems with it. I guess newer isn't always better?
