Answer
My guess would be it's the main board.  Can't be sure without testing.  You could try it and see if it fixes the problem.  You should expect to pay about $60; maybe less if you can find it on eBay.

Changing the board is a fairly straight forward operation.

You will find all the boards online for this model.  The blue screen problem is common to this model and I found some forums saying the main board was the problem but others say it was other boards.

Best wishes.  Hope this helps.
