Hey y'all,


I have the Black Macbook (purchased in 2008) and within the past month, I have been experiencing problems with the battery. I've noticed lately it becoming weak, not being able to last long without being plugged in.


However, now when I plug it into the charger, it shows 0%, and if I disconnect the charger, it automatically shuts off.


I checked the System Profiler, and the condition of the health shows "Check Battery".


What are my next steps from here? I don't want to purchase a new battery, in hopes to get a new Macbook later this summer.


Does my Macbook have much life, or should I go ahead and brace myself for a new one?


Please help!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
