Macbook Pro Battery X - No batteries available

I know this thread has been discussed various times, but i just can't find the right answer

Over the past few days my charger has been playing up and only working on some occasions. Originally i thought that it had to do with my power adapter, so i tried other power adapters but the green light still wouldn't turn on.

Also after concluding that it was my charger that was broken, my laptops fan then started to proceed to make loud noises, and i've tried shutting the laptop down numerous times, but the fan sounds still go on.

And then, my battery icon has the X stating that there are no batteries available (but i've been on my laptop for the past hour). Also i've read on other threads to check the power system and cycles remaining, and this is what it says,

Battery Information:

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

What does this meannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn?

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Reset the SMC.

This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

an X on macbook battery icon

Hello (gonna try my best english)

Had the same problem, an X on my macbook battery icon, I solve it with this:

First I cleaned all the metal conductors on the power connector and I blew the dust on the computer with compressed air

Then bought a battery replacement on amazon at $25

and last I instaled the Battery Update 1.4

Now my computer it's working perfect..

Hope this solve you problem too
