Hi,
The problem you are facing is due to short mother baord or charging circuite of your laptop what is happened is that due to the shortage then new battery is damaged and when you put that battery in your friend's laptop the charging circuite may also get damaged you can try a hrd reset on your friend's laptop if that didnot help then I am very sorry to say that you may have to repair both the laptops.

Hard Reset

1 Disconnect the battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Conncet the charger (don't connect the battery yet) and try to start by pressing the power button.
