Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

Dell Inspiron 1526 cannot communicate with battery

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

I went thru the diagnostic check and the battery shows 100% charged but it will only run on the power cord with an external monitor.

Any ideas?

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.

If 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%

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

AC Adapter, Battery, Motherboard

How do I determine the battery pinouts for my Dell Inspiron 1526


the pin outs for the batteries in general are:
1 +Batt - Battery output voltage
2 SMB_SDA - System management Bus Serial data
3 SMB_SCL- system managemant bus Serial Clock
4 Batt_temp - Battery temperature monitor
5 battery_present or Battery ID
6 GND - ground

the SMB_SDA & SMB_SCL are used by IO controller chip in mainboard to communicate with the battery( battery type , charge level), and you can not use other model laptop batteries because it will not match with the bios whitelisted battery type.
no way you can fake the battery, instead you can flash the bios by modifying the flashing programs config.ini file so that it ignores the battery

I have completely lost all power to my inspiron 1526 laptop


Hello,

Please try the following DIY to find the issue:
1.Remove the battery and press the utton for 30 seconds and then plug the adaptor and run on ac mode without battery and if it is powering on then issue is with battery.
2.Refix the battery and check whether power LEDs are blinking.

If not in both the cases this is the issue with the MotherBoard and you will have to contact either DELL or any repair vendor.

Adapter is plugged in, but not charging for my Dell Inspiron 1526. Any thoughts?


turn on the machine and as soon as you turn on the machine keep on tapping f2 which takes you to BIOS screen, In the system option come to the Battery info and if it is showing battery and shows ac adapter as none it means adapter is faulty if it shows ac adapter type unknown then be prepared to purchase a new system board for your laptop
