macbook pro early 2011 not turning on even if plugged into the wall.

two days ago my original charger exploded when i plugged it into the wall.. like smoke came out and everything. the copper wires were broken and all that. so i bought a off brand charger and a new battery (since my macbook said replace soon) so i bought both things at the same time from amazon.

charger arrived, i plugged it and the little green light didnt turn on or orange.. so i decided to replace the old battery with the new one, and nothing happens either.

a buzzing sound starts as soon as connected to the charger, but the charger does not indicate the green or orange light.

tried turning on without battery, a new charger, a new battery, several wall plugs. nothing is working. tried resetting the SMC by removing battery and pressing 5 seconds the power button.. nothing.

i can hear a buzz from the macbook when plugged and it silences out when unplugged. any help as of what should i do is welcome. thanks

Sounds like the Macbook has been zapped. I'd take it to an Apple service center and see what they suggest.
