That if the story is correct you need to swap in a new motherboard. There are only a few parts to make this work. Battery, board and the power brick. Ugg.
I recently installed a new battery on my Inspiron 1501 laptop, but the laptop will not power on with only the battery. The battery shows to be 86% charged and the Device Manger says the battery is functioning properly. Is there a procedure I must perform to get the laptop to recognize the battery on power up? Any help would be appreciated!
