    I upgraded/replaced my RAM today with Kingston 8GB and afterwards I booted my computer up. Ran a RAM test, and it passed and then I noticed the battery says "Service Battery."

    I googled it, and nothing really came up. Something mentioned resetting PRAM or SMC or something along that. I rebooted my computer holding the left side Shift+Ctrl+Option and the power button. Nothing happened to my knowledge, and it still says "Service Battery."

    All help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Usually this means your battery capacity has fallen under 75 or 80% of the original, don't recall which one.

    It's nothing to worry about unless your battery stops holding a charge.

    Sounds about right. Nothing to worry about.
