Assuming you still have the original battery re-install it and see if the computer recognizes it. It so try resetting the SMC again. If your new battery still isn't recognized return the replacement battery for refund or replacement. I am puzzled by the fact that Coconut battery seems to see the battery but your hardware does not.
