Default Dell LA-C571P - Won't Charge - Battery 255%


This motherboard reports that no battery is installed, although it will power on from the battery if there is a charge on it. It also will not charge the battery and reports the percentage at 255%.

I have replaced the battery twice with two different (but compatible) batteries and it behaves the same way. When the replacement battery arrives with a partial charge on it, it will power on the laptop, but the charger will not charge it and reports at 255%.

I believe this is a motherboard problem, but I am not quite sure where to look. Could someone help me figure this out?

Here is the schematic and PDF boardview (attached)
