    the battery has been taken out and reinserted. The little LED on the charger will not turn on while it's plugged in but isn't charging.
    I only have this problem if my Macbook has been running off of the battery for more than 7-8 hours and the battery percentage does not seem to make any difference.

    Health Information:
    Cycle count: 958
    Condition: Normal

    It might be PRAM and SMC reset time. Apple's knowledge base is a Google search away.

    Yup did both and of those and I still have the same problem. Forgot to mention that this happened right after my old charger died.

    It could be the charger again or the DC-in. It probably needs a little more technical hands on than what can be provided here.
