When I got the battery it was still in the original packaging and had not been opened. As expected there was a little corrosion, but no leakage. The corrosion had gotten to the PCB, so after I had removed everything for rebuilding, I resoldered everything on the PCB to the specification in this article: http://www.conradshome.com/thinkpad/701/battery/
The pins on the Dallas ID chip go to the pads they're supposed to go to. I've checked for continuity using a multimeter. There are no shorts anywhere.
After replacing all the cells with standard AA NiMH rechargeables, the pack reads 11.7 volts on the multimeter. The laptop powers up and boots using only the battery.
However, the system still cannot detect the battery. It says "not installed" no matter what I do.
Yes, all the pads are scraped shiny.
What gives? Has anyone had this issue before? Do I have a shot ID chip?

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
