PB520c Battery Question - Mac Portable

Hello. My PB520c says the battery is charging, then later gives me the full battery symbol in the toolbar. However, as soon as I pull the AC cable, the unit displays the reserve power warning and the computer turns off. Is the battery dead? Is my AC adapter faulty? Why does the display read battery charged? Thanks, Brian...

    This usually indicates a shorted cell in the battery. In the case of
    the Blackbird, however, you may be running into problems with corrupt
    battery EEPROM data. The Lind battery control strip (68040 PB5xx
    series only - won't work with PPC card) can reset some of this info,
    it's worth a try.

    I described how to hack the Lind Control Strip to reset *all* battery
    date a while ago [95? 96? :)], search google for "lewin powerbook lind
    resedit" and you should find it.
