The battery shows 100% but this is the original one. Could this be wrong and should I change the battery?  The battery info was obtained via iStat

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    Personally, I do not depend on 3rd party utilities to tell me the status of my battery.  Apple/About This Mac/More Info/Hardware/Power/Battery Information - copy and paste the information here. Do not include any serial numbers.


    Crashing can cause directory damage.  If you have Diskwarrior or Techtool Pro run one of them.  Or you can do the following -

    Disconnect all peripherals from your computer.


    Boot from your install disc & run Repair Disk from the utility menu. To use the Install Mac OS X disc, insert the disc, and restart your computer while holding down the C key as it starts up.

    Select your language.

    Once on the desktop, select Utility in the menu bar.

    Select Disk Utility.


    Select the disk or volume in the list of disks and volumes, and then click First Aid.

    Click Repair Disk.

    Restart your computer when done.


    Repair permissions after you reach the desktop-http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2963 and restart your computer.



    Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    After doing the above, use Software Update to update your os to 10.6.8 and anything else that needs to be updated.  After the installations, repair permissions and restart your computer.
