    "13 Macbook
    Unhappy Do I need a new battery?
    My two year old White Macbook wouldn't charge for about a day. It would charge on and off every thirty seconds, and it kept on dying. And then it died, and it won't charge. When I press the battery indicator on the bottom, none of the green lights appear. I took my battery out and put it back in, but it still didn't charge.

    I looked online and it says a new battery is about $140. Do I just buy that and put it in my Macbook, or do I have to do something else? I don't have an Apple store anywhere near me (I live in this deserted mountain town!) and I don't have a warranty.

    Thank you!

    Try resetting the SMC here and then calibrating the battery see here if that helps. Note the 2 hours with green light on.
