2000 S-10=PO440 Evap Malf. PLEASE HELP ME

Hi I havea 2000 S-10 and have been trying to get it inspected. The Check Engine Light has been on and when I got it checked it gave the DTC PO440 Evap Malfunction. So I started with what everyone has told me to try which was trying a different gas cap > I've tried 4 different gas caps so I know this isn't the problem so then I decided to run new vaccuum lines because mine were starting to dryrot a little and it was time to do it anyway but after I did this I had no leaks at all but the problem still never went away. This has been so frustrating especially because I have a 98 S-10 that got wrecked and has front end damage but I can use all parts almost off of it if I could just figure out what the problem is. I just had to get my transmission rebuilt so I am running low on cash and was hoping I could fix this myself somehow. If any of you could help me I would appreciate it more than you know. My Inspection ran out in 06 yeah I know that is stupid and I live in NC so Im bout to get hit with a 250 fine before long. Thanks for your time everyone , I really appreciate it.

I live in NC as well...did you see my Chevroletforum decal somewhereby chance?
