Has this been exposed to liquid? Are you operating this on a flat surface, such as a desk, or an uneven surface (your lap)? Is the fan running? If so fast, slow? Download and install iStat, tell us what it has to say about your temperatures, fan speed processes. It is a free widget/program. Click here to read about it and download it. Please tell us more about your system: What version of OSX, how much RAM, recently updated/upgraded firmware or hardware, etc... ?

Does the onboard battery checker show the battery has some charge? If not I suspect the mag-safe contacts or the DC board have a problem. Did you get your system wet?

Try cleaning the contacts on both the charger and system with some isopropyl alcohol for starters. If you did get your system wet you'll need to open it up and clean the DC board. You may need to replace it.
