Exchange/test/borrow, RAM, GPU, PSU, these are common failing elements.
Thank you.

Do you think it is a boot failure rather than a BIOS failure?
If so, why it is a boot failure rather than a BIOS failure?
Explain a little bit, please>
Thank you.

At the boot, the pc checks hardware before booting. When you have a freeze by then, means a hardware error. As i said those are common failing elements that should be tested.
Bios doesn't just fail, there's no such thing as bios failure. If set incorrectly, then there is no boot. But since you can't enter bios to change anything, that's no issue presently.

Thank you.

"... a hardware error. " You said.
I concur that it is a hardware failure if you look at the fact that it does not complete the booting, but what makes it not complete the booting?
I think the cause is in the BIOS. I can not be sure but :
1.If it is a boot failure, it is caused by SSD or Windows boot. Bad SSD or boot do not cause the entire system break dow.
2.The fact of this issue is : all the devices are dead, SSD & SATA & USB port ....
Do you still believe it is a harware such as hard drive or GPU or PSU....?
