Can a "loose" battery be fixed?
MacBook 13" 2GHz Intel CoreDuo
I have had my macbook for about four years and for at least three of those it has shown an x in the battery icon unless i wiggled the battery into exactly the right position and held it there.
Not being a particularly techy type I had assumed the battery was loose and there wasn't really anything that could be done.
After my fiancee kindly introduced my macbook to the floor a number of times the hinge has snapped leading me to discover this intriguing website.
After reading all about how to replace the hinge I started thinking maybe I could completely fix-up the old girl and give her a new lease of life.
So can a battery become "loose"? Or is it likely something much more complicated like a loose wire inside that just so happens to be situated above the battery and connects when i wiggle the battery about?
Ultimately can it be fixed?
And before you mention it, I know three years is a long time to be putting up with a faulty laptop but I'm quite busy most of the time and the rest of the time I'm extraordinarily lazy.
