Just received my new Magsafe 60w Power Adaptor from the apple store today, however although it is powering my MacBook, it is not charging it.


I bought my MacBook in early 2008 and it is version 10.5.8, it has an intel core 2 duo processor, and leapord OSX, so I looked for solutions and followed this guide on the apple support site [URL="http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3499"]http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3499[/URL].


I dowloaded the firmware update [URL="http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1312"]http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1312[/URL] accordingly but when I try to install it, it says " Alert: This computer does not need this update"


I looked at other solutions, and tried removing the battery and holding down the power button for 5 secs, I've checked that my Mac intel dual core is using the GUID disk partition which it is.


So I am pretty much lost with what to do, has anyone else had this problem and managed to resolve it?





Thanks Anyone
