As for the startup repair, I'd already tried that with no success. That's where I got the Problem Signature report from.
I'm still experiencing the same freezing issue. That is, if I unplug and leave the computer for a minute, then plug back in, I'm able to boot from the disc and get around to the repair utility (not that it's helping much, but I at least get there). However, after a couple of reboots it ends up not even booting past the first screen. It really makes me wonder if it's some sort of mechanical failure but I'm not sure how to pinpoint it.
