    I've been having problems with the battery of my macbook.
    Often the little green light of the adapter just went out or just green and never red/orange.
    The computer is about 2 years old so I thought maybe the battery needed replacing.
    So I bought a new battery.
    But I still had problems so I bought a new macsafe adapter cable thingy.

    But alas, no solution.

    So the little light on the macsafe is green, but the battery charge says 99% and it doesn't go up.
    Just not charging.

    What to do?

    Check the following link for instructions on troubleshooting the MagSafe adapter, resetting the SMC (instructions for both in the CHARGING section) and calibration. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
