Desktop freezes on startup

Mac Gurus, help!
Recently, my Mac IIvx 12/80 (7.5.5) has been crashing frequently. As soon as the desktop appears, any activity with the mouse freezes the screen. I tried restarting from different startup disks (even the original system disks) but it was the same story. I was alerted to some system errors such as type 1, type -10 and type 28. Any clues?
On one such restart, the sad face appeared with these numbers below it, along with a series of beeps:
I used Tech Tool to zap the PRAM and rebuild the desktop, but problem persists. I have an external CD-ROM and EZ135 on a SCSI chain. I checked for connections and they seem to be OK. I have an internal 240M HD in addition to the original 80M HD. There are no SCSI ID conflicts between these devices.
1. what is the problem?
2. how do I fix it?
