Im sure the virus would have stopped a boot up unless is was a bios virus which is rare. It's sounds to me as if it's a processor problem, it seems to work at first which suggests the motherboard is working, but then as soon as the pc starts to work hard which is on start up its either getting too hot then shutting down or simply damaged. I assume you cannot get into the bios as it shuts off too quick, but you may still be able to clear the bios by locating the cmos battery and flipping out, as the bios may not be seeing your hard drive and crashing,this will make your laptop pause in the bios first, so trying to get in the bios may be a step forward so as to get the laptop to see your new drive.

Try tapping either F5 or F8 (can never remember which) as soon as anything shows on the screen on boot. One of these will bring up a short menu with your available choices for boot.
