    I experienced the ever so popular black x in the middle of my battery screen like many others. Which it will not charge and can only run off the ac adapter. I have tied the new battery bundle 1.2 and doing a SMC ( system management controller) none worked. SO i went to the apple stored explained the problem to the tech guy who then gave me a brand new battery and seemed to work at the store so i went home plugged my computer in and i still have the black X . I have no idea how to get rid of the thing. it shows on my ac cord the light in the red orange color which means its charging still. So I need some help. Anyone else have the same problem or know how to fix this?

    You've done all the right things to try to fix the problem, and the fact that it's happening with a second battery suggests it's a problem with the computer, so I'd probably take it back to the Genius Bar again and have them diagnose it.
