Would this be insanely stupid?

Bit of a dilemma for you as how do you know if it is the CPU or MB that is bad, that goes for the old MB/CPU and the replacements.

The smaller board sounds like a daughterboard and would cause your issues if it was bad.

this is the part in question. And I agree the only end I can come to is that somehow either motherboard is getting enough energy to complete startup. I'll get the replacement in and post my results. (I really hope this is the last part I have to get)

Hopefully the replacement board will indeed resolve the issue for you, good luck.

When you power up keep tapping the F2 key to see if you can get into the BIOS without the notebook shutting down.
Do the following three please to see if there is any change in the behavior.
Remove the Ram and power up.
Remove the HDD and power up.
Remove the CD/DVD drive and power up.
Inspect the power on button board and ribbon for signs of damage.
