My new battery cam with an eight page manual containing instructions got use in a translated (poorly) version of the Chinese original. Of course I did not need a manual to install a new battery and ran into the same problem as you. Refer to the discarded manual and find one and a half pages on how to initialize a new battery.
OOPS JPG came out too small to read so here is a rough OCR
"User Manual on Laptop Battery
Thank you very much for trusting and using our laptop battery. Before using the battery, read this manual carefully. This instruction manual elaborates how to use and maintain the battery correctly. Batteries are consumables, and have a limited service life. However, we can prolong the life of the laptop battery considerably through correct operation, proper charging/discharging and correct storage.
Calibrate your laptop battery to optimize its performance
Inside the laptop battery is microprocessor software, which calculates the battery volume during the charging/discharging. Batteries must be calibrated from time to time to ensure correctness of the time and the percentage displayed on the screen. You must implement a complete cycle of charging and discharging the battery at the beginning of using the computer, and repeat this cycle every two or three months. The charging and discharging procedure is as follows:
Set the Power Supply
option first: Right click on the screen and select Property -> Screen Saver -> Power Supply -> Power Use Scheme -> Portable.
In all the subsequent operations such as When Computer
and Use Battery,
Under the Alert
option, deselect Alert for deficient battery
and Alert for serious battery shortage.
2.Disconnect the power adapter and use the battery until the computer is powered off due to exhaustion of the battery.
3.Connect the power adapter until the battery is charged to 100%. Before initial use of the computer (or resuming use of the computer after long-term storage), the battery must be charged to full.and discharged for 3-4 times to optimize the performance. The charging process takes more than five hours.
Note: When your battery is calibrated and reaches the best performance, set the Power Supply Options on your computer to the default value to ensure that the computer can send correct alerts to you, for example, low battery alert, and alert before the computer enters the hibernation status.
You must discharge the battery to let the computer power off, and then charge the battery to 100% to calibrate it. Then you can connect or disconnect the power supply anytime regardless of the status of the battery volume. Moreover, you can perform a deep charging and discharging cycle under control of the protection circuit in a time"
