overheating, power supply, could be any thing
Try safemode see if it still does it

Very similar problem during Summer (hot days) with the grandies old computer.
Was the heat paste under the CPU fan had dried out and cracked.
CPU was overheating and shutting itself down.
Wouldn't even get to the stage where the screen would light up, so very much same as yours.
Drop CPU fan off and clean out the heatsink of all the fluff and dust, then check heat transfer paste.
The fluff/dust clean (vacuum cleaner) may be all that's needed, so don't go too far if you don't know what you're doing.

Vacuum cleaner is a no no for electronic components - too much static. Can of compressed air is ideal.
