Answer
If it is that

You replace the suspect parts. But I've seen such hangs when certain USB devices are plugged in.

So as a test.
1. Unplug all USB things (even the keyboard) and retry.
2. Unplug all drives and retry.

We want to make the machine complain and give up more info.

In other words you make the machine as small as possible.
