Why does my hp pavilion trys to power up then it shuts back down

My mother turned her computer off, then she went to turn it on the next day and all it does is the power light comes on for about 5 seconds then the computer turns off. So the only way i can get any response is to unplug & plug the power cord, yes the fans are coming on then it shuts off. I can hear a beep like it's about to boot up right before it shuts off.

1.) I've tried a different power supply. (same issue)
2.) I've tried a different battery. (same issue)

Please help me fix mom computer, i can't afford the geek crew
