    I had a similar issue with my 2.0GHz early 2011, randomly crashing then no longer booting. I was unable to charge it once the battery drained. I hope you don't have to go through the same thing I did.

    Apple first replaced the internal power adaptor components. That didn't fix it…
    Then they decided to replace the logic board. That worked for an hour…
    They then gave me a series of lectures about replacing the ram, before telling me that my ram was faulty. Except it wasn't…
    Several logic board replacements later, and apple finally replaced my laptop.

    Finally I found that the AMD GPU was faulty in all the logic boards I had received. Only one employee admitted this was the case while the rest simply dismissed any of my concerns.

    No. Basically i dissasrmbled a similar macbook pro. Took the battery out and put it in my mbp. And it worked until it ran out of battery again. And no it didnot charge .
