My laptop has been out of commission for about 4 months, and I popped in some new memory to bring it back to life. Now, the batteries have stopped charging. One stops at 59% and the other doesn't charge at all. Any ideas?

You can't get the modern batteries to come back to life. Time to get a new one. A suggestion: When using a laptop battery, run it on battery and discharge it until it shows about 2 to 3% charge left at least once a month. Do not keep charging it without letting it run down periodically. Most important--do not run always plugged in to line current.
depending how old your laptop is the batter is on its last leg. What happens is if you leave your laptop plugged in all the time, the batter gets overcharged and begins to die. For the next battery you acquire remember to charge it for its required time then drain it out by using the laptop. This will prolong the life of the battery.
Not really. What happened is you shorted the life of the battery by always having it plugged in and in a charging state. The battery has a memory and since it's always been plugged in, it will never charge fully. There are products out there that will drain your battery down and reset the memory issue. But it would be cheaper to get another battery. If you are going to keep it plugged in the majority of the time, charge up the battery and remove it.
The only easy check I can suggest is for you to have a look & see the memory underneath the laptop. It should be covered by a squarish panel/lid held by a screw (or 2). You can try wiggling it or best remove it by moving the 2 locking clasps at each side slightly away making the memory pop out. You can now remove the memory and clean the little gold tips/connectors using a pencil eraser. Reinsert and try again.
Other than the above, would suggest that you bring it back to your dealer/supplier since any further action on your part would void your warranty.
