I recently took my battery out and when I re-inserted it the little grey slider won't slide back and I can't get the battery out now either. The computer runs fine, but I would like to resolve something it seems I messed up.

    It's better than not being able to get the battery back in.

    Do you mean the PRAM battery, or a laptop battery?

    how hard did you have to push to get it in exactly?

    also, what make/model laptop are you talking about?

    I didn't think I pushed it hard at all. I have a 15" PB 1Ghz only about 4 weeks old.

    Yeah I feel your pain and its one of those things that if you take it to an Apple Store the guy fixes it in 3 seconds and looks at you like you're some kind of idiot for not being able to fix it on your own.

    Hey, that tech spent years training to be able to be that condescending!

    dunno then. i have the same model, and i've never had trouble with the battery, but i also have only take it out once or twice. you can't just do what you did to put it in in reverse?

    How hard did you press it? I have only taken out my battery once or twice myself, and when I reinserted it I had to press very firmly near the latch in order for it to click back into place. The first time, I didn't and when I turned it over the battery fell out . I know you're probably a little afraid to force something, but just try that. Or...just take it to the Apple Store .
