Welcome to HP Forums and Thanks for the post.
I understand that your computer is not booting to the desktop and the power light comes on for 5 seconds and turns off, is that right?
Not to worry, I will be glad to assist you.
Have you tried any troubleshooting steps on your own?
Do you have any external devices connected to your computer?
Recommend you connect a USB keyboard to your computer and perform a BIOS recovery. Click here.
Check if the issue is resolved, if the issue persists, try the steps suggested in this guided troubleshooter.
Keep me posted.

Any update to report?
Personally, I would never try a "BIOS Recovery" as the *FIRST* step when trouble-shooting.
It is too "invasive" for my liking.
If you power-on your computer, and choose to enter BIOS SETUP, does it power-off "by itself", while you are viewing that "setup" screen? That's a sign of a power-supply, or motherboard, problem, not a problem with the BIOS.
