Try to connect the computer to an external monitor by plugging it to the connector at the back of the computer. If it works then there is something wrong with the laptop's monitor. If it doesn't, it can be any of a number of problems. I think that you will be better off checking the computer at a decent lab.

I would take it back to the shop that replaced the mother board as it sounds very much like it has died again.
