Dell Inspiron 1526 cannot communicate with battery

\015 My daughter's Dell Inspiron 1526 cannot communicate with the battery and will not recognize the battery charger. Now the screen won't come on. I dida diagnostic and got an error 0326 msg: Error code 2000-0326 LCD inverter-unable to turn lamp on. Vendor:MPS Rev 3\015\012\015\012I went thru the diagnostic check and the battery shows 100% charged but it will only run on the power cord with an external monitor.\015\012\015\012Any ideas?\015

Answers :

The diagnostic Error is a False positive you can ignore the diag error as the LCD is functional. If the battery is not recognized in the BIOS or you get an warning the AC adapter is not recognized, then you may have either a damaged AC adapter sensing pin (Fine wire in middle of ac adapter connection to Laptop) or a problem with the charging unit on the motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012If the sensing pin is damaged or the ac adpater is not sending the right signal to the system, the battery charger will not work. SO if you have another Dell D series AC adapter, you can try it 1st. If the battery is 18 mos to 2 years old, you might see if it is IDs in BIOS and if it indicates battery state. Also the battery should have a test button and 5 LEDs on it. If the 1st 3rd and 5th LED flash the battery is bad. ANy any come on solid, then it is a % of charge, each LED = 20%

\015\012If you end up replacing hardware, then it will most likely be in this order:
