    Okay, so: the indicator lights on my battery are not lighting up at all, Mac OS X says it's not charging, while System Profiler says:

    Charge Information:
    Charge remaining (mAh): 0
    Fully charged: No
    Charging: No
    Full charge capacity (mAh): 0
    Health Information:
    Cycle count: 282
    Condition: Check Battery
    Battery Installed: Yes
    Amperage (mA): 44
    Voltage (mV): 4155

    Does this mean the battery is dead ? I don't think there's anything wrong with the connector, otherwise I probably wouldn't get any information at all about the battery. I did change the logic board recently and this problem occurred after I did so, as far as I can recall but then again, the mac didn't work at all before I replaced the board.

    Anyway, all suggestions are welcome.

    You can try resetting the SMC (instructions in the following link at the bottom of the CHARGING section.) Other than that, it looks like your battery may be toast or you still have a problem with your new logic board. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
