No, there is no extra power switch for battery power. It's the same one as for AC power. Likely, but not for sure, that battery is no good and needs replacing. Is the battery seated in its recess, installed properly? You never mentioned the brand or model number of the laptop. Often but not always, if you don't have one, there are User Guides available on the computer maker's website as a replacement for the original so you could see what buttons on the computer are used for which purpose or procedure. You could also contact the computer makers technical support by e-mail to pose a specific question or set of questions regarding the computer's usage or, even request a replacement Users Guide.

It's strongly recommended that you only use a factory authorized replacement for that battery.
