From Mac Support article


1. Shut down, then remove and reinstall the battery. Test for the issue(s) again.

2. Connect the MagSafe power adapter (if you haven't already) and see if the behavior continues.

3. If the issue(s) persist, download and install the Mac OS X v10.4.9 Update.

4. If the issue(s) persist, download and install Battery Update 1.3.

If, after installing the Mac OS X v10.4.9 Update and Battery Update 1.3, a black "X" still appears in the menu bar, follow the steps in MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air: Battery not recognized after being fully drained.
