This is not a solution. I have an identical machine with the same issue. Boots halfway and shuts down. Tried booting from external drive same problem. Called Apple, no solution except to send it in for a "Flat Rate Repair", $350$357 with tax and shipping. Apple gets it, sees a small dent in the corner where the hard drive is, which affects nothing, and demanded another $300 to replace the upper case. My customer refused the extra charge and bought a new machine. I bought it from him for parts. So if your machine is perfect on the out side I would suggest a Flat Rate repair. You might also be lucky and get a reasonable tech. Apple said it was a logic board issue, they probably know the exact problem but aren't telling. I'll let you know if I can come up with a better solution.

UPDATE 11/21/15
 
I have two more machines in with the identical issues, Both are MBP 15" 2011. Apple announced a extension repair program 2/20/15. Go here to check if you qualify:
 
https://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro-videoissues/
 
You may have to call directly as they don't tell me you on this link if you qualify. Apple did not bother to mention this program when I sent in the last machine.
 
UPDATE 11 /23/15
 
I took both machines into an ASP I work with. They have to run a diagnostics test (which I can't get yet) to see if the machine qualifies. Looks like I have lucked out. Both machines failed the test and Apple will have to replace the logic board on both. Apples greed on the one I sent for a flat rate repair got them this time. Now they have to pay for it. Why didn't tech support tell me about this program? They let me send it in then tried to extort an extra $300 for a non-consequential dent by the battery and charge for a new uppercase. Shame on Apple.
