I have a mac-book (removable battery) with a reasonably new replacement battery.  The computer was not used for a long time and when I restarted it I the battery indicator shows an X inside. Neither manner of resetting the SMC have helped.


Any other ideas?




MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Relatively new removable battery
