    So today, my MacBook Pro (Late 2011, 17-inch) is acting strangely.

    The mouse is all jittery and everything runs slow.

    I check the activity monitor that shows 1200% cpu!

    The battery has an X across it and said "battery is not available".

    I did an SMC reset and the battery was briefly detected before going back to an X.

    Reset NVRAM didn't help.

    I disconnected the battery and reconnect it after a minute.

    The computer runs normally for now.

    Cycle count: 776

    Is this a real issue or a one time glitch?

    It's normal for the computer to run slower when there's no battery detected.

    I'd suggest getting a new Apple battery while you can . . . You are reaching the end of the battery's expected life.
