may be a hard drive fault could you remove the hard drive from bottom of laptop then see if it will boot to bios. if it does the hard drive will be at fault

It seems to be a common fault with the graphics card on this model

how do you know what model?

try off mains with battery removed bad battery could be dragging voltage down causing the power off.

My son had a 9500 model which "died" a while back. Changed the HDD but no luck then saw this article

seems to be the battery pack causing the problem -HP seem to have issued a recall for models affected-had a letter last week to that effect.
