Ouch, it does indeed sound like a motherboard problem. I believe we had one member who this happened to and it was due to the BIOS having incorrect readings as far as the temperature gauge goes. I believe he fixed it with a flash, but if his computer didn't boot up for more than 10 seconds like yours then he would have had to do a BIOS Hotflash and had to have had the exact same motherboard =/ and I'm pretty sure that's out of the question....

Hmmm that one is rather tricky and my first guess like yours immediately points to the motherboard. Unless you can hotflash it then I really don't know what to tell you and the plans you and your friend have as far as rebuilding it sounds like the best approach.
