    Hey guys, only posting this because I can't find an answer googling it.....


    My 2007 macbook won't charge if I take the charger out then try to put it back in. I have to take the battery out for it to recognize it and get it charged again. I went to apple store and they told me its my battery and couldn't give me an answer ... surprise surprise, so new battery later and I still have the same problem. Any solutions? Thanks!

    It sounds more like a problem with your MagSafe adapter connection. Check out the troubleshooting link in the CHARGING section of the following link. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    I agree, you might need a new power cord.

    You have the new style charger that needs the software update for 07 MacBooks.

    Did you mention it was the style charger ?

    I am amazed that the Apple Store did not pick that one up.....
