    Alright, my macbook is about 4 years old I think so I don't know if it's a problem with the computer it's self, or the charger.

    But this has been going on for about 2-3 days now. My battery icon says it's at, oh say, 19% left. But on the icon it shows the "Fully charged" Picture, but it is not charging the battery it doesn't raise but it doesn't drop...

    And now it's at 0% and not charging at all... And if I disconnect it of course shuts off..

    What can I do? I'm going to try and visit my local Apple store tomorrow but... Though I'd check and see if I can get any help here first.

    Try starting the computer with the battery taken out and the power plugged in. If it starts then you know its your battery.
