If I need a new logic board. Is my laptop worth it?

Battery does not charge and I have already tried a different battery and DC in board.

How's the charger? Do you get any lights on it? Will the book boot at at all? According to exactly which machine you have, you can get a logic board right here at iFixit: http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts/PowerBoo...

Your original post was not an answer and should have been a comment- since you have edited your question to include a proper answer, I will remove the downvote.

If your logic board is bad and you have to replace it, then it is probably more cost effective to go buy a refurbished MacBook instead of shelling out $500 or so to get a replacement logic board.

However, it may be worth a shot to open up your laptop again to make sure everything is plugged in correctly. It would be a shame to throw a laptop away because of a simple loose connection. You can also try resetting the PMU. It may not fix the problem, but it is worth a shot and it is free!
