Hello Sleepyboi,

1. Call up AppleCare first. Yes they will and should replace both the battery and now the deformed battery cover.

2. We will recommend you to head down to Sunshine Plaza E-Serv.

3. The battery is bloated, if I were you I'll remove the battery (and place it far away from me until the day I bring it to the service center) from my macbook and stop charging the battery. It's always orange because the battery is bloated. And no, I always leave my macbook docked with a powered usb hub that I plug 24/7. I don't face this problem.
thx petpet for your prompt reply...

i am afraid the battery would explode or something too, but i am unable to remove the battery because the now-deformed battery cover prevents me from doing so. i think the bloated battery pushed the aluminum mechanism out of shape so much that i am unable to remove the cover at all.

ac power and battery

is it recommended to fully charge to 100% then use till say 5% then charge back to 100%? so am i right to say my cycle is 95%? so the next charge 5% will complete my 1 cycle?

also, after charging to 100% can i leave my ac on while working on my macbook? will this harm my batt life?

Why would you want to do that?

If you discharge to 95% and charge 5%, that's 5%, not one full cycle. If you decide to discharge to 5% and charge another 95%, that's 1 cycle (5% + 95%). It's listed on Apple's website.

Your second question has been asked to death, please do a search!

You have to ensure you've installed the apple hardware drivers first before you could use ur trackpad. To right click, place your finger on the lower right portion and push it like a button.

How to connect to wireless depends on your windows version. Lets assume you're using windows 7, your com should be able to scan for wireless network by default, and this icon will appear next to your clock at the bottom of your screen. Click it, search for your network and connect.

You cannot resize your partition as and when you like it. If you really need to resize, there are 3rd parties software which helps backup an image of windows for you on an external HDD and restore it once u reinstall windows.

So in conclusion, you will need a hell lot more of effort to resize it.

Im using windows xp, and it doesnt scan my wireless automatically. Any advice?

Thanks!
I've not been using windows xp for some time, therefore i'm not familiar in the proper config.

You may try accessing control panel. There should be a wireless network icon for you to select...

So can you still access your old HDD?
Get a HDD enclosure and place the old HDD inside.
Extract the iPhoto library.
