Hi guys, I find myself faced with a strange problem.
A couple of days ago the power supply of my MacBook Pro 15 early 2011, greeted me. Meanwhile I buy another one and I realize immediately that the battery level indicators are no longer responding.
Then, starting up and using the Macbook, I realize that the battery charge level does not reach 100%, despite the fact that the battery is not brand new but still working, this adds the annoying problem that within safari in some sites The uppercase letter t is no longer available, while in other sites and applications it works smoothly.

In short all the annoying and strange problems that I suggest do a nice SMC reset to solve it all.
I turned off the macbook with the power plugged in, I pressed the keystrokes for the reset, that is: Shift + Control + Alt + Power button, but everything stays silent.
I disconnected and plugged the battery, but idem.
I do not know how to reset and I do not understand what the problem is at the base.

That is the correct key combination to reset the SMC. Your Macbook won't make a noise when the SMC is reset.

Apple changed the SMC reset instructions in Feb 2017 to say unplug the power before the keystrokes:

https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201295

Nothing happens when you do this, everything stays silent.

My MacBook recently would not start....seemed completely dead. Applecare said do the SMC reset. I was sceptical as the machine was completely dead, but I did it anyway and it started up after the reset.

This time I run the reset without connected magsafe.
I held down the keys for 10 seconds, after I plugged in the power and started the macbook.
Problems still remain.

What did this mean in your OP?: "A couple of days ago the power supply of my MacBook Pro 15 early 2011, greeted me."

I wouldn't expect an SMC reset to solve the keystroke probs but it might have done the battery related one.

It means the power supply did not work and I replaced it with a new one.

Now the problems are: uppercase letter t does not work in safari, and the battery indicator is not even.
[doublepost=1495733689][/doublepost]Ok the problem of t is resolved and was caused by a safari extension. The problem with the battery indicator remains.
