    I took mine that did that into apple. They had to replace the magsafe charger. (Better that than the computer itself.)

    This is a known new battery.
    Should I also mention that the machine will not boot.

    Additionally, I asked the question because I wanted to know if there might be a way to diagnose this machine from the way the lights flash. ie. Do I need a new Magsafe board or logic board?

    Thanks for your reply.

    It's obvious that you aren't contributing to this thread.

    Does the battery symbol has an "X" on it? Take it the the Apple Store.

    safe to use 80watt magsafe in a 60watt white macbook?

    I have several extra 80watt magsafe power adapters. Can I safely use in a smaller (60watt) macbook?

    (also, I tired to start a new thread but can't for the life of me find a "new thread" or new topic button!) (sorry!)

    You can, but I wouldn't recommend it. I would imagine it would eventually do damage to your computer.

    Look in the mid left of this picture, just a little below the MacRumors logo.
