MacBook 4,1 death by dim green light-HELP!

After making a tough call and installing new cdrom drive, upgrading HD, and maxing memory RATHER than buying a new computer that I can't afford, my MacBook suddenly won't charge or turn on. Get a dim green light on magsafe connector and no battery blips.
After researching, narrowed it down to bad charger, bad magsafe input board or bad logic board. Bought refurb charger, no go. Bought new magsafe bd, no go. Can't make myself replace the logic board even after all the money i've thrown at this!
Anybody have any thoughts on what I can try before parting out this computer and buying an enclosure for the HD? Pretty, pretty please
Battery was working great before, but I've heard they can de-charge to the point of death. Worth pursuing? Can't boot into target mode, or run any kind of repairs without it turning on--any other options?
Thanks in advance, Mark
