SOURCE: MY IBM T43 fails to boot
Take out the hard drive and see if the laptop still shuts down. If it doesn't then your hard drive might be the issue. You can also try reseating your memory.

If you haven't tried it yet, pull the battery out and try booting from the adaptor only.
If it boots normally, then your battery pack may be bad (shorted cell) or the regulator that has the job of charging and monitoring the battery pack while keeping your system running may not be healthy.
If you own any multimeter (at the cost of Chinese DMMs, everyone should own one), check the battery pack for charge. Under normal conditions, they should measure a couple of percent higher than their rating. You will have either Lithium Ion or Nickle metal hydride batteries in the pack so should measure some multiple of the nominal cell voltage of one of those types that are respectively 3.6 & 1.2 volts.

I just had same problem with 2 laptops. Power light came on and fan ran a few secs but nothing else. I replaced motherboard and CPU in one. The other just had to reseat CPU and it works like a charm. I thought it was AC adapter or LCD but it just had to be reseated. I would try that before I bought anything.

This is caused by burn out of the Nvidia graphics chip on the motherboard. You need a new motherboard. This is due to a design flaw (the subject of a class action against HP in the USA). I have had two motherboards fail on me in this way so far - do not expect any worthwhile support from the HP "support" people they are all in India and can hardly communicate outside of their simple repetative scripts. Its impossible to escape them - I tried communicating with head office but all you get is contact details back to the incomprehensible Indian call centre. I strongly recommend against ever purchasing from HP again.
