    My Macbook hasn't been able to be charged for a while now. Basically if you take the battery out while the computer is running and its plugged in, it will shut off but in a few seconds it lets me power it on without the battery in it..
    So normally i just put the battery back in and leave it plugged in so the battery keeps its charge. It's been at 37% for a few weeks and will not charge up, it just looses power if disconected from the power cord.

    So when i go to system profiler it says,

    AC Charger Information:

    Connected: Yes
    Charging: No

    Anyone know how i could go about fixing this?

    Did you reset the PMU? Tried another battery? If that doesn't work you've got a problem that is best fixed in a repair shop.

    yeah, basically i tried another battery and another charger and the problem persists. I figured the connection (from the charger to the battery) inside the computer was damaged somehow. Haven't tried the PMU yet though, I'll post any progress as it comes.
