Even though you didn't drain it completely, it should still hold a charge unless it's dead. They do finally go bad

deleted, because when I see the word Battery I think of cmos battery in desktop.
If the poster has a laptop, what I suggested is irrelevant, therefore I'm removing it.

Draining the battery was important with the old Nickel Cadmium batteries which could retain a lower memory level if this weren't done, so I'm guessing that this battery is for a laptop? These batteries can get to be expensive, about $100.00. One of the problems with this type of battery is that the longevity of the charge will eventually become smaller and smaller till it will no longer take a charge. I'm afraid once the battery reaches this level it is pretty much a door stop.

What is the make and model of you laptop?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
