If it was the power supply the freezing wouldn't
be limited to the bios. In fact most of the freezing
would be during the time when the operating system is
in control.

Try removing and replacing the bios/cmos chip.
That action will clean the connections.
Heating and cooling cycles can loosen socketed chips.
Also, while the chip is out, blow out any dust and
visually inspect the chip legs and socket connections.

Good luck.
