I have a Dell inspiron n7110 and I bought a battery for it not too long ago. The battery has been working great up until now and gave me no warning that it was going to crap out on me. What has happened is that I left the computer on playing a movie and it died with 0% battery power and left it like this for over a week. Now the battery wont charge at all. I just get the amber light flashing on my computer and when I installed dell quickset it says it cant communicate with my battery. After doing some research I have found that my battery discharged until it was completely dead. Normally when a battery says its at 0% it is really at 20%, but its a reserve that you cannot use. If you dont charge your battery that 20% will eventually get to 0% and then you have my issue. I read that I could jump start my battery, but I cannot find a single video on how to accomplish this. I also cannot find any videos on manually charging the cells. So I am posting here in the hopes that someone can either tell me how to jump start this battery, manually charge the cells, or bare minimum tell me what the pin out is. I have also read that the battery will go to sleep and will not work until you wake it up. I guess thats what jump starting is. Can anyone help me with this battery?
