SOURCE: Loud bang, unit stopped working
I have seen the caps in the power supply vent, which means they get hot and the top pops up and splits open, resulting in the "bang" sound. If you have experience in electronics then remove the back of the set and examine the power supply, looking for any caps whose tops are bowed upward, and replace.

The best way to find the part you need is search around for the board manufactures name. Then goto there web site. You may be able to download technical data right off the manufactures web site. Over heating is a big problem with lap tops. You never want to place your laptop on a soft surface when its on. A soft surface blocks the fan from extracting heat from your laptop , resulting in a over heat and eventually failure. You want to place your lap top on a hard surface when its on. This will provide ample room for your fans to cool your lap top efficiently. You can also purchase a laptop docking plate. It not only is a hard surface but also it has its own fan to increase the cooling capability of your laptop.

SOURCE: Won't Charge
Common fix for this problem is a simple Power Management Unit (PMU) reset. This will basically re-sync the battery "brain" to the computer so they when when to charge and when to stop. To do this, simply turn your computer off, remove battery and power cord and hold the power button down for 7-15 seconds. Then you MUST wait 15 seconds after pressing the button before applying power or inserting battery. 75% chance this will fix your problem. If Not, Replace Adapter/Charger. They have a microchip in them that can go bad that senses when to send more current to charge battery. Apple motherboards are generally better built so I'm not suspecting that at this moment. Let me know what you find out.
