Battery Dead ?

I have a Fujitsu - Siemens V2030, with 2Gb ram upgrade

I have the 3-cell Lithium Ion, 2200 mAh. The Laptop is about a 3-4 Years old. The battery has always worked had a runtime of about 45mins (supposed to be an hour!) but about a month ago it didnt seem to work. I had the battery charging for a usual amount of time (xp showed the battery in the icon that it was charged) when i took out the AC power source it died my laptop went off. So i tried to start up without the AC m didnt happen :( The only way i can use it is if i use the AC power source which makes it more like a desktop than a laptop. Should i buy a new battery , theres a 4400mAh on ebay for 15 squid, or is it somethimg else ?

Looks like a new battery is required.Some of the batteries can be quite expensive.
