    I think my battery is bad now on my MBP. When I plug it in it doesnt say that its charging and it keeps going farther and farther down in % left.

    Not sure what to do? Anyone got any ideas? Can I reset anything to make it charge?

    Thanks

    have you tried using cocanut battery to see what it says about it?

    might be your charger going bad, i assume it works on the charger though?

    Judging by that...it looks like your battery is fine.

    I did a PRAM reset

    when I click on the battery in the top left corner I see this:
    (note how the battery options do not allow me to highlight them... :confused:

    what do you think about this? oh yeah its a 97% now. :(
