    another update.... if i remove the power adapter on boot it will boot then go to sleep. press power button then it wakes up for about 1 min then goes into hibernation. so the battery is connected.

    also the battery not recognized is not there anymore but it still shows no battery installed.

    when i go to power in system information it says there was an error gathering information.

    Double check that there is no faulty battery connection. It is possible that the battery cable got accidentally crimped or bent when removing the Logic Board.

    Did you verify that there are no visible bends or cuts in the battery cable?

    I would bring it into the Genius Bar and have them run tests on the battery.

    Apple Authorized Service Provider

    They will have all the tools to test your Mac.

    Double check with Apple. Best Buy is useless.

    i would like to try and figure it out with out apple. currently the macbook just doesnt see the battery at all. there is no battery icon with an x no nothing. but i can get it to run on the battery.

    if i boot then select windows and then remove ac cord it will run fine on battery. from windows i tell it to restart. it shuts down and then the sleep light blinks 5 or six times i never can seem to catch it. then the macbook bongs and boots right up. i have screen caps of the power info page showing no battery and no ac .

    hopefully someone reads this and knows what to do.
