why assume the mother board

I'd try hooking up your cloned drive (if you backed up the computer) and see if it runs.  Both memory and a new hd can cause issues if they're defective.  From what I've heard ssd drive failures are sudden and catastrophic - as opposed to slow grinding death from a traditional HD.

If you have an optical drive - put your installer disc in - pull up utilities and check your disc.

I'd give it a shot.
