my brother has a black mb and recently his battery stopped working. it won't charge and in the battery pull-down menu it has an icon with a battery with and "X" on it. he did get the battery update (1.2 i think) but did not wait 24 hours after the release of the update. i'm aware of the 15-inch macbook battery recall from but it says but my brother;s mb is from october-november 2006. But then again, the recall page says so that might be my brother's battery. (i'll check when he get's home) So, if you have a simailar problem or advice please tell! Thanks in advance!
