@zhubl Zachariah, John makes some great suggestions for what and how to check. Since you mentioned that the brick was VERY warm, once you have it disassembled, I would also suggest starting by visually examining the components and circuit board for signs of high heat (scorching, blistering, and burnt circuit traces on the board). This may help you narrow your search for what's amiss. While you're looking, you might also see if there are any unintentional solder bridges, and check the electrolytic capacitors for leaking, bulging or where the plastic covers on them may have shrunken.
Johns's suggestions would follow.
