System: *MBP 13" Mid 2010 *Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo *RAM: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 *Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB OSX Yosemite: Ver 10.10.5 ------------------- <hr> (can I use html here?) ------------------- Hello I've had multiple problems this past week, my laptop started breaking down 1. The battery cycle count reached 1050, when it suddenly just stopped charging. Now the laptop won't work if it's not plugged in. Does this sort of thing really happen, where it won't charge at all and must be plugged in to be able to be used as if a desktop? 2. The laptop has a hard time of starting up. It will load up to 1/3 of the progress bar, and then just stay there (dim lights, mouse pointer visible) I have to restart it over and over just hoping it will start up properly. 3. I had a flash update request earlier, and it failed, I don't know why. This was also the first time I saw the password verification became like this: http://imgur.com/Lhw7I7G (screenshot from a password verification when I was installing a malware scanner) 4. Laptop has drastically became slow and clunky.... All this from this past week only. ------------------------ Of course I realize my laptop is practically 6 years old, but it was a hand-me-down for college. I currently have no intention of replacing the battery because I am planning to buy a new one preferably the latest MBP 15", in a month or two. But as of yet, I am stuck with this laptop. And I wish someone could help me resolve the given problems above, and/or make the laptop holdout until then.
