    Default X in battery icon of iBook

    My batter ran out while on vacation and I didn't get a chance to recharge. When I plug in the adapter, the batter icon on the monitor shows a black X. Can't seem to get the batter to charge, but the computer still runs when plugged in.

    Anyone have any tips? I read something about a batter reset? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Try looking up "deep discharge" in Wikipedia.

    After that, follow these troubleshooting documents.

    MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air: Battery not recognized after being fully drained

    PS. Depending on the time when your battery stayed "discharged" there may be damage to the battery itself.

    Thumbs down The Battery is Dead.

    if it shows an X , then you're battery is dead. i own an iBook G4 and that happened. i bought a new battery.
