Recently Energy Saver Preferences Shows Battery Service with a Triangle.

Also I am noticing when I have more that two Applications open, sunddenly computer heats up, the Fan goes wild and the Battery nose dives fro 98% to almost screen black out.

 

I have to hold down Power Button down, to quit.

 

Then when powered up immediately started charging battery the Fan continued blowing for a while.  but then Quit.

I have a Battery coming.

 

I've tried the SMC reset. Dut I am not sure I am doing it right. Its almost impossible to press the shift-control-option and Power button down.

 

Any one have this issue and what am missing.
