Dead Laptop Battery?

Iíve had a Dell Latitude D820 laptop computer since 2006 and had it plugged into ac power for some months now. I also have a Dell Vostro 420 desktop on which I do 90% of my computing.

I recently tried booting up the laptop on battery power and nothing happened. Did the battery simply die Ö or was the continuous ac power the culprit?

Earlier this year I worked briefly in battery mode and it started warning me to recharge after just a couple of hours unplugged from ac power. BTW, this is the original battery that came with the laptop. What are my options here?
