Reseat the battery. Here's how.
Reset the MacBook's pmu. It tells you how here:
Have you ever calibrated your Battery ?
If not see http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86284
If you cannot calibrate call AppleCare, you may need a new battery.

Good luck !

It is ironic how the battery dies like that. Mine have just died exactly as described here, and it is a result of "calibrating" the battery, also exactly as described by the Apple website.
This makes me wonder what is wrong with the macbook PMU circuitry/battery management.

Hi, I thought I'd post here, because the exact same thing just happened to my MacBook: the battery died after trying to calibrate it. I let the battery power drain down comletely, then when I plugged it in, the battery isn't recognized and the little light on the plug is constantly green, but, there's no charge in the battery. When I press the little white button on the battery, one light blinks fast for about a second.
