Sorry for so many posts i am just getting
Good ole HP laptops. Gotta love em. First thing to do is go to the following site to see if your computer is covered. The wifi thing is a very common issue with these laptops over heating.
Chances are yes you lost your motherboard. Look online,not HP for replacement, I got one for $110 for a dv9000. As far as what I've done is cleaned the heat sink from grease and thermal pads and used arctic silver 5 thermal grease and also invested in a ZM-NC2000 cooling pad. These are insanely good, recording a 30 degree F drop. This will help keep it going after repairs. You can also go to the following site, put in your product number, them click on how to and you can find a whole manual explaining how to completely disassemble the whole laptop and replace every part. Good luck.
