I don't think it is the case. But, if it is a removable battery, perhaps there is insulation on the end? (like a small tape). Some manufacturers do that. You would have to remove that first.

Other than that, as webworkings has said, when you use it with a charger, what does the battery say? Is it being detected at all?

Try running HWinfo and see what it says under battery (smartbattery? last thing usually on the list on the right. Double click it and then select primary battery. On the right you get the readout).
