    My macbook has randomly stopped working without being plugged in. When the plug is in it says it is charging and the light on the plug is green. Then i unplug it and it shurts off as if it ran out of power. I have restarted it and taken oit the battery bit it makes no difference. Also i can not connect to wifi now, i know my wifi is working cause my ipod is connected to it and working but on my macbook the option will not come up. Is there anyway to fix my battery problems without going to an Apple store? I live in argentina right now and my lack of spanish makes it hard to communicate there. Thanks

    Contact any of the authorized dealers to see if they speak English:

    What is the model # on the bottom of your laptop?

    Some models are easy to replace the battery, which can be purchased from eBay (only use OEM Apple batteries)

    Sounds like you need a new battery as others have said. If you find out what model you need you could probably order online and do it yourself very easily.
