Sounds to me like your battery could be cracked, and whatever cracked it (stacking, squeezing) may also have damaged or loosened your airport card.

I had a laptop in an overhead bin on an airplane upon which a fool placed his carryon on-top of mine. It cracked the battery, but of course I didn't realize it at the time. My MBA exhibited strange charging booting behaviors, the black X would appear/disappear along with "battery not found" messages.

Finally I opened the box and looked around - couldn't see anything wrong… reassembled, problem persisted… figuring it must have something to do with the battery I reopened the box and when I lifted the battery a crack could be seen running across it (crack was invisible when resting flat). Apparently moving (torquing) the case would cause/solve the short from the battery making all my problems intermittent.

If you have had something stacked on your laptop, or, if you dropped your laptop you may have the same problem.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

so should I change the battery??

First disconnect then reconnect the battery to the logic board.

Next download and run Coconut Battery to find the condition of your battery and let us know your results. http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutba...
