    After my mac shop swapped out the mobo in my macbok pro, coconut battery shows Battery Age: 24468 months?

    How can I get back to my good old 2 months?

    Reset your PRAM and SMC. It's always a good idea after new hardware is installed.

    New logic boards will screw up plenty of reporting software. Is your serial number even showing up in System Profiler?

    How interesting, it comes up as

    Serial Number (system): System Serial#
    as in no serial number

    EDIT - after some googling I found out that the Service Center has to set the serial number when changing the mobo. Will phone tomorrow about that

    Yeah the out of the box logic board is the only one that is going to work right. Anything new that's installed is going to be screwy.
