ibook battery not charging

The battery won't charge more than a few minutes and the iBook won't run on the adapter alone.

Hi, I have a new ibook (intel core duo ones) and i forgot it swiched on runing just on the battery last night, this mornig when I incerted the power plug and restarted it appears with the charging light green all the time and the battery icon with a x. The battery is not charging at all so when I plug off the power it swiches off and it=B4s seems not be recognizing the battery. Please give me some advise, the labtop is new!! Thanks

Such a nice way of saying "RTFM", isn't it? ;-)

To be fair to the OP, I know what search terms in this case would get the answer in a hurry. The OP suggested s/he may be new to Macs, and therefore wouldn't know that "Power Manager" was the relevant phrase to search with at Apple's support site.

Sorry, It's true that I'm new to this, but I tried already to reset the power manager like they say in the apple's support site but I'm still with the same problem. The computer is working as if it dosen't have any battery.

Hi, varp -

If it's new and it's misbehaving, you've got a warranty on it and can return it for free repair or replacement. m.

In that case, follow step 10?

"10. If you are still unable to start up your computer after trying each of these steps, you may need to take the computer to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for more assistance."

As it's new, I would contact the place you bought it, or Apple directly, then. You have a warranty that will ensure your computer will be repaired or replaced.

Excuse him for providing a link to a page in which Apple describes exactly what to try? What would you have had him do instead?

Oh, I have no indication that he ever thinks at all, but his response may be rather amusing.

Ever notice that he and Phantasy keep taking turns? Very little overlap between them.
