Question about Computers & Internet
Have you tried to remove the battery and work off 100% AC power? Sometimes a faulty battery can cause a laptop to not boot correctly.
But, yes that does sound like a motherboard issue. The only thing you can really look at if your have already checked memory and hard drive is overheating. It is possible a fan has slowed which caused the board and CPU to over heat. This would explain why it works after letting it sit for awhile. I would try keeping an eye on the temp of the system and check for spikes. There is also a small chance the CPU could be at fault if over heating is ruled out. These types of issues are hard to troubleshoot once you eliminate the easily removable parts and get down to the CPU or motherboard.
