Will not operate away from ac power. Have replaced ac charger and battery with known good units. Anything else to try before replacing the motherboard?

update bios and call dell, even if it's out of warranty they'll usually try and help a little like telling you if there is a rest command or stuff like that, don't expect a big long help session on an expired machine but it's worth a shot.

what happened when you put in a good battery?
did it show the battery, and the charge - and did it charge?
if not, it looks like the charging circuits on the mobo are bad -  and , as you supposed, the mobo should be replaced
