So I've had my computer for a while, I think I got it back in March 2006, and around August 2006, I was having trouble with my battery where it would be fully charged, but would automatically shut down when I took the charger out. I went in to the Apple Store and they were able to replace my battery with a new one. Lately my computer gets really hot, so I bought a laptop fan to help cool it down and that helped a lot with how long the battery can last without the charger. This week, my computer began to shut down unexpectedly even at 79% battery life and when I try turning it back on, it'll begin the process of turning on and just shuts down again. As of right now, my cycle count is 246, and my full charge capacity is only 934 mAh. I began to calibrate my battery so I'm hoping it works, but it's not looking so good. I was wondering is there something I can do myself, or should I take it to the Apple Store and if I do, will they even replace my battery? Thanks!
