Replaced my battery and now I have a "no battery available icon",

Hello, four days ago I received a new battery I ordered on amazon because my old battery was showing a replace immediately icon. Now I installed my brand new battery the day I received it using the tutorial on this site, and the battery icon has an x through it and says 'No Battery Available" when I click on it. I've tried resetting the SMS by taking the battery out and holding the power button and my using command+shift+option while it was turned off. While using the computer for a few hours, surfing for any way to fix this problem, the computer shut off, even while it was plugged in. Now, even though it's plugged in, the computer does not turn on at all. Please send answers quick so I can know if I need to return the battery or not and thank you for your time. Also, I am not sure if any info from my computer will be necessary in helping solve this problem, but it will probably be difficult to provide given the fact that the computer does not turn on anymore.

Answer this question I have this problem too

This answer was originally to another question.

Try a PRAM Reset.

Here's how to reset your PRAM:

Shut down your machine. Yes, all the way down, not sleep or logging out.

Press the power button and then press command-option-p-r. ...

Hold those keys down until your Mac reboots again and you here the startup chime.

Let go of the keys and let your Mac reboot normally.

If that doesn't work you may have got a defective battery.
