I have the MacBook 1,1 (2006 model), and it's been broken (Mac OS got corrupt) and it's only been fixed since May, and has the Ubuntu OS on it. The laptop only runs on A/C power, and if I take out, the whole machine just turns itself off. I've done the; take out the battery, and MagSafe power adapter and hold it in for 5 seconds then put it all back in, then the MagSafe charger goes orange for about 20 seconds then goes back to green. HELP! I know purchasing a new battery would be the best bet, but I'm wondering if there's any way to potentially "fix" this error. I had read some articles saying that if the MacBook isn't used for a long period of time, the battery "dies", and then you have to go buy a new battery.. very frustrating, and obviously it doesn't have warranty as its from 2006. Please tell me some 'home remedies' for potentially fixing this, as this error is a bit of a pain. Thanks!
