    For first, hi there :)
    I have an mid 2008 MacBook Pro, some time ago (about 4 month for now) i observe thats, my computer dosen't charge propertly (only for 75%, eg.) so i've read some opinions over internet and perform an a SMC reset, after that my computer dosen't start anymore. How I've done:
    1) Turned off computer
    2) Remove Battery
    3) Hold down power button for 5 sec
    4) replaced battery
    5) trying turn on computer, but thats failed. I cant turn on it anymore.

    Thanks for any advice,
    Regards,
    Michael.

    Make sure the battery is connected properly.
    Also try with the power connector.

    did you try and do a SMC reset without plugging in the power charger? if so, that's why. Try and so another SMC reset; hold for at least 15 seconds.

    There is nothing in resetting the SMC that can "break" your computer.

    Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)
    The actual steps are as follows:
    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    I remove a charger cable and battery, hold down buttons etc, then i reconnect battery and charger. From then it cannot run.

    I cannot do anything, computer seems to be death...
