Battery neither charging nor loading
I've inherited a A1150 MacBook Pro. It will only run when when power is plugged in. The LED on the magsafe plug stays green so the battery won't get loaded and the battery status says 'No battery connected'.
What could possibly be wrong? One thing I don't know is, how long the MacBook has been without power, so it could be a case of deep discharge, but wouldn't there be logic in the battery or the MacBook to prevent discharge?
How can I check the battery without another MacBook to test it in?
Thanks in advance
Is this a good question?
