MacBook cannot recognize battery

When I followed the battery replacement guide on this site exactly, I booted up my MacBook to see that my battery had an x through it with the no battery availible popping up when I scrolled over it. I (stupidly) left the computer on while I browsed for a solution. The whole time my charger showed a green light. Suddenly the computer turned off and hasn't been able to be turned back on since (about 2 weeks) despite switching to another battery and another charger. The charger still shows a green light, which means the battery is either fully charged or installed incorrectly. I don't understand how it can be installed incorrectly when the only part to put it into the computer is the plug in. Please someone help me, I have no idea how to fix it and have made multiple forums on here asking for help, to no avail.

If Brandons answer fails, read the Q & A: Black x in the battery charge symbol?

You're going to need to run an SMC reset. Instructions can be found here

Wait, sorry... I just missed part of that.

You're going to want to remove the battery, and start the machine with JUST the power cord connected. Sometimes if there is a battery issue, as a safety measure, the computer will not power up with the battery in place.

Once you get the machine to boot, follow the directions in the link provided in the answer I posted.

The machine doesn't start up, with or without the battery
