Is the green light you described the 'charge' light or the power light?

    So even thought the light indicates 'charging', does it actually charge the battery or does it not?

    Yes, you may want to try another battery. If another battery does the same thing, it's definitely the Motherboard. Let us know if we can help if you need parts or any other service.

Battery appears charged, but computer will only run when plugged in

does your battery have one of those charge indicator panels on bottom?

also, it's possible that the connection from battery to the internals is shot..if that's the case, then you're looking at a major motherboard swap
