    I googled the problem but can't find solutions. I just did a software update and restarted my computer, and the battery was dying so I plugged it in. It's saying "not charging". I can still use the computer when it is plugged in, but as soon as I take it out, the computer shuts down!! I know it's probably from doing the update, because the battery has worked perfectly fine until then.

    Battery Information:

    Don't say that my battery is past its sell by date, because I KNOW it only stopped working because of the software update. I updated "firmware", so could this be the cause? What can I do to fix this...

    Try resetting the SMC and PRAM.
