    You probably need a new battery. Unless of course you just haven't given the current battery a chance to charge.

    Although based on how old that machine must be, it's probably the battery unless there is another hardware issue lurking.

    Looking at iFixit's HDD replacement guide, I can't see where you would be dealing with the battery connecter. Regardless, that does sound like the source of the problem :(
