Hi,

I have a Macbook that won't run on the battery.

When it is plugged in, the battery charges and the computer runs fine, but as soon as the battery is plugged out, the Macbook will switch off. It is a 2009 Macbook A1181.

I tried a friends battery in my Mac and it still wouldn't work, and when I put mine into my friends Macbook, it worked perfectly so I don't think it is the battery.

Can anyone help?
