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.

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
