Tried first three methods you suggest, all exactly the same result

BIOSTAR menu of F keys comes up, press an F key, then two loud beeps in quick succession, then goes to black screen with yellow heading "Hardware Monitor" then a blinking white cursor. Mouse and keyboard then are totally unresponsive.

That is all I get now, the Hardware screen.

Previously, I have these types of freeze:

1. Black screen with nothing but blue Windows logo;
2. Same as #1, but underneath it says something like Automatic Repair. After hours waiting, nothing happens.
3. Long before these freeze ups there was a freeze up with a spinning dotted circle. That was so long ago, I dont' remember any other details. I think I got out of that by internet advice to manually reboot three times in a row.
