    Hi, guys

    It's my first post here and I reeeaally hope you can help me out.
    I've read everything I found on the internet about battery problems with the Macbook Pro, but nothing solved the issue I'm having.

    So, I have a black Macbook Pro 13'' 2006, serial number 4H7046F4WGM.
    The power adapter that came with it, a T-shaped MagSafe, broke a couple of years ago. Since then, I've been using the L-shaped one that came with my dad's Macbook Air.
    It was working just fine, but then my battery stopped charging. So I replaced it, because it was actually really old.
    Now I just got a new battery compatible with my Macbook but it won't charge!

    I don't know if the problem is this new battery or the adapter.

    Does anyone have an idea of what can I do???

    I'd get another adaptor, but assuming the battery was correctly installed, one other thing to try is an SMC reset:

    Was the battery a genuine Apple replacement? I always buy the real thing...some of the cheaper copies don't work well at all, and you might have got a bad one.

    The MacBook Air should use a 45-watt MagSafe adaptor, which is not recommended for the MacBook. You need a 60W adaptor, or higher powered.
