V570 won't charge, won't boot with battery in place w/wo AC, will boot with battery removed AC

My battery was dying. I tried calibration, letting the lenovo run just on the battery. It looks like it went down to 0%, then shut off. But it wouldn't charge. It was probably never charging in the first place, always running off the power of the AC. 

 

But I could still boot to AC.

 

So I bought a new battery. It said to calibrate. So I tried that. The battery ran down to maybe 20%, then shut off. But the same result. Laptop will neither boot nor charge the batttery. Again, it will boot just fine with the battery out. 

 

So, what's to be done?

 

Also, I tried to get into the BIOS via F2 and F12, but that doesn't work either.

I can get to the BIOS by unplugging the battery and AC, then holding down the power for 60 seconds and rebooting.

But there aren't any options with regard to the power besides to beep if power is removed.
