    i have a powerbook 1.67ghz.

    the status light on the battery blinks as if it has no life even upon leaving the laptop plugged in for an hour.


    when i unplug the cord the whole computer shuts down, and only works when plugged in.

    this is just a battery issue that a replacement should fix.

    do i need to hit my forehead now?

    thanks!

    New battery should fix the problem. What's this mean? "do i need to hit my forehead now?"
