    Did you have a power surge? The vertical lines imply it's probably the logic board in which case you'll want to take it in to Apple. Good luck. :)

    At this point you can try a few different options.
    One option would be do take the battery out of the laptop, let it drain completely, which may take days, so prob not for you, and take the empty battery and recalibrate it, full charge plus two hours.
    Otherwise, i would take it down to the nearest mac store, get an appointment with a mac genius ahead of time, and the genius will likely repair or replace
