Now back to topic, anyone else got any beard stories to share?
Well, this one time... Hahahahaha.

Oh and if you're talking school break, mine just started today... yay
It was the motherboard. Tested out both old and new today, and it was the new that worked. Sigh, angst. I was hoping to be able to have my computer miraculously start working again and I'd be able to send the new mobo straight back to my seller and get a refund.. but nope.
So now I have to wait for my new fan & heatsink module to arrive (that was what started this whole ordeal in the first place, tearing apart my laptop to get the part number off my fan). Then I'll be cleaning off the old thermal compound from my CPU, applying the new compound that came today, and putting the new heatsink on. A little bit of a waiting game with everything, but it's not that big of a deal. I even rediscovered my love of having a desktop.
EDIT: And yes, I was talking about school break.
