Sounds like the battery is faulty. You could try charging the battery again for a prolonged period to see it can power your laptop, but failing this, I'd return it to Amazon.
Correct, it won't power on unless I have it plugged in. However, I learned something new. Regardless of what the status says, I can unplug the AC adapter and it'll run just fine. Even when it says "Battery not detected" it'll still take power from the battery. So it seems the main issue is, I can't boot up without the AC adapter. I'm on Windows 7 64bit. Strange...

Yep, I tried shutting down, removing battery, booting up, and then shutting down again. Readded the battery, but I still have the issue. I've removed the battery and placed in the old battery which does not have the detection issue.
EDIT: Well it booted up without the AC Adapter. It seems like it had to warm up or something... What kind of defect causes something like this?
