I've heard APCs go "pop" when the battery decides to explode/implode.
Check the casing to make sure the battery hasn't gone.
Also, check for any heat/cold problems. It could be that the various
plastic/metal parts are getting stressed. The final suggestion is
that something's getting into a fan somewhere.
