Dell Inspiron 1150 | Need help with battery replacement

So I found my old Inspiron 1150 in my garage earlier and I've decided to try and revive it. The first problem would be the battery, whenever the laptop is on charge, the orange light indicating charge is blinking. After reading the manual I determined that it was because the battery is defective and I need some help with the specifics of replacing a battery. Ex: Do I have to consider it's capacity? Rating? I'd seriously appreciate replacement batteries.

FYI: The battery model is Li-ion 6T473

Thanks.

RE: Dell Inspiron 1150 | Need help with battery replacement

First thing to verify is that the system starts up on AC only -- without the battery.  If it does not, more than just the battery is faulty (likely the mainboard).

This system has a resale value of well under $50 -- putting more than that into a battery or repair makes very little economic sense.  It's a 13 year old budget notebook -- if it works on AC power, use it that way - - if not, recycle it.
