Alright Tacoma world. I need your help really bad right now.
Last night my computer decided to act up. It is a macbook pro purchased in 2009. It cant stay awake and keeps falling asleep, even during boot up and shut down. I think I have recovered the files that I need to study (finals start monday) but I am desperate to get this fixed.
I think it is the battery. But even when the computer is plugged in it does this. When I do press the battery level button on the side of the computer it tries to come on but is dim and then goes out (it looks pretty pathetic).
What do you all think it is?
and if it is the battery, shouldn't having it plugged in still have it run?
Is there a way to tell the computer during boot up to bypass the battery and run directly off the charger so I can atleast use the damn thing and get the rest of my work off of it?
Thanks in advance! I freaking out here!
