    \015\012
  • Appear to have no charge (zero percent)
  • \015\012
  • Be\015\012unable to power the computer by itself; the computer might work only\015\012when it is connected to the MagSafe power adaptor, which only shows a\015\012green LED
  • \015\012
  • Appear with a black "X" icon on the menu bar

  5. If the issue(s) persist, download and install the Mac OS X 10.4.9 Update.
  6. \015\012
  7. If the issue(s) persist, Download and install Battery Update 1.2.\015\012
\015\012 If,\015\012after installing the Mac OS X 10.4.9 Update and Battery Update 1.2, a\015\012black "X" still appears in the menu bar, contact apple by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753)
