Laptop display consistently goes out after 5 minutes. Plugged it up to a second monitor to test, both go out after 5 minutes.

 

Does this mean it's the motherboard 100%? Thanks.

Also, it gets really hot under the keyboard, so I think it's the motherboard.

Have you opened up this laptop and cleaned out all the dust and build up? Sometimes a good cleaning can do wonders. Also, are your drivers up to date? This might be an issue as well.

Do you hear any fans running?  It might be heating up and shutting down by default.

Laptops are very troublesome because of heating. One way to reduce heat is to buy laptop holder from Targus. It holds the laptop off the table so air can run freely there. It is called Targus Lap Chill Mat.
