Help! My computer freezes almost instantly after power-on!

This started yesterday after the power in my apartment flickered and caused the machine to reboot, although I seem to remember this happening for a little while a year or so back but then disappearing.
I turn my computer on, the bios screen starts to show up, and the thing freezes before it's even done. I know this because the sentence at the bottom starts "Press DEL to enter SETUP, ESC" and then freezes before the usual "to skip memory test." Needless to say, it never gets to the memory test.
The computers a no-name cobbled together from some guy on the internet a few years back.
