netbook battery problem

I have an Acer Aspire 1410, which I hadn't had occasion to use for a few weeks at least, so it sat on my dresser, unplugged, with the partially-discharged battery in it.

Now it won't start or run at all on battery, but when I plug it in, the Windows power meter claims it's 100% charged, and the battery light on the body of the netbook doesn't show it charging, when the computer's on or off. Also, a battery diagnostic program says that the battery is "not found."

This sounds like "buy a new battery (and then take it out of the computer every time you turn it off)" to me, but I thought I'd better ask the Internet to be sure. Internet?
