Question: Can battery status "replace now" cause macbook pro to slowdown?
I have an early 2011 - 13 inch macbook pro. It is around 16 months old and already has a battery status of "replace now". The battery is completely dead. Before I had a battery status of "Service Battery" and not it is "Replace". After I got this battery status, my macbook pro has become really very slow. The cursor moves really slow and I can't even play any hd movies. I have also tried reinstalling the operating system and setting my macbookpro to factory default. But still no improvements.
The only good thing is that I works fast in the beginning and after a few mins., back to super slow speed.
I will be replacing the battery after 2-3 months. Can someone please tell me if the battery status of "replace now" cause the slowdown? And any recommendations for fixing this until I get the battery replaced?
Any help is really appreciated. Thanks!
