My thinkpad  600 normally is used  plugged in.   I  unplugged it this
evening  when a thunderstorm started.   The battery charge indicator
had been saying it had a full charge.   A few minutes later it had
turned itself off.   The orange light is blinking, saying the battery
needs charging.   I plugged it in, and the orange light is still
blinking.  It's supposed to be on solid if the battery is charging.   I
turned the computer  on and the little green light comes on but the
screen stays dark.  

Do I need  new battery?
