    Hello all. New to this Forum and have a question and can't seem to find an answer to after searching the site. I just picked up a 15" macbook Pro 3.1. When I got it the battery indicator say "not charging". Howevr it does charge. I did a clean install of the original osx and the upgrade to Snowleopard that was with it. Thing works great but still says "not charging" but it does infct charge the battery. Also the amber/green light does not illuminate on the charger. Any thoughts??
    Thanks, Bill

    For battery, power, or charging issues, you might try resetting the SMC. (PRAM/NVRAM has nothing to do with these issues. Resetting it will not help.)

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    might as well check with a different charger and see if resetting the smc does not help.
