HP Pavillion Laptop not charging! HELP!

I have an HP Dv4155CL laptop running windows XP and it will not charge ( or run on ac power) when I plug in the ac adapter. It WILL however, charge when I have the ac adapter AND an external monitor plugged in, so its not the power jack or ac adapter.
What I have done so far: I have replaced the motherboard. I have also replaced the vga daughter board. I have flashed the bios with the newest version as well. Right now I have taken apart an LCD monitor and carry the "guts" in an anti static bag so I can have my laptop semi portable and still have it charge. I dont know what else I can do to make it charge without the monitor, and HP is being less than helpful.
