Hi there , yes it is mother board problem. But $399 is really too expensive for 2 years old laptop. I suggest you buy a new updated laptop & take out the HDD from the old laptop. Visit a service center & tell them you want to make that HDD for external using purpose. They will fix it for you & maximum 30 $ they charged for it. So you get a updated laptop & your all old data with external HDD. Now why i suggest you for a new laptop. If you pay 399$ for motherboard then you can use it. But again if you feel some thing wrong in other parts then you go for buy that. Finally when you make a total cost you will see a new laptop prize. Hope you understand my meaning.
Thanks &waiting for your feedback.

Laptop LCD comes on at system startup and goes off

Sounds like you have the Laptop in Presentation Mode. If you look along the top of the numbers you may see some extra icons, maybe in a dark blue. One of these may look like a screen. If you press the Fn key (bottom left) and tap this "Screen Key" you should cycle through the various modes (LCD/LCD+ External/External Only)

Depending on the model, you may have dedicated hardware buttons instead.

Modems are used for dial up connections either to the internet or for faxing. Dial up internet is almost obsolete, faxing is still used with modems, mainly in the business world, but it too will soon be obsolete. I'd say that modems will no longer be a part of any computer with in the next three years.
