    This is what I do to fix a dead battery - it's worked every time for me - maybe you could give it a shot?

    - open the laptop and unclip the battery connector to the logic board.
    - connect the power cable and switch power on
    - after 5 seconds attach the battery to the logic board again, leaving power on
    - battery should now start to charge normally.

    Hope it helps.
