As I read another thread, I think I see what happened here. I never took the battery out, and possible over charged this and hence burned out the battery. I never knew you were suppose to take the battery out.

It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model. Removing the battery if on AC power(not charging) was recommended for both of my HP notebook computers by the manufacturer. I can't remove the battery on my MacBook Pro so I won't when using it on AC power. You best bet is to go to the manufacturer's website, search for your model and see what is recommended.
