Question: Macbook pro 2012 battery not recognized, x over icon
Hey there. My computer (Macbook pro mid-2012, 2.5g i5, 16g RAM, 1TB SSD, running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6) is not recognizing my battery after a hard drive upgrade. When plugged into power I can boot my computer and Instead of showing percentages I have a black "x" over the battery icon. If I am not connected to power I cannot turn it on. Below is the System Information report.
I just upgraded my hard drive to an SSD because my original SATA HD died (flashing folder). I also changed the HD cable because that is anothering thing my research pointed towards from the flashing folder issue.
I have reseated the battery (note that both the tabs where the screws anchor are broken but the battery still seats well and this was the case prior to my SATA HD failing and had no battery problems). I have also reset the SMC to no avail. Please help!
