maybe start with posting a system check.
Two days ago my Wii loaded up perfectly fine. Today, it started to freeze and spit a buzzing noise out through my TV's speakers after it sits on the System Menu for a few seconds. I made sure to take out any GameCube controllers, memory cards and even tried removing the SD card. I am able to use BootMii to go into the Homebrew channel and load games through my USB Loader, among other numerous apps. I have not updated my Wii for about a month, so I don't know why it suddenly started doing this freezing issue. I tried using DOP-Mii to install it but it didn't work (installation error). I've also used Waninkoko's System Menu 4.3B updater, but to no avail. I've tried reinstalling the System Menu and IOS 80 using several different homebrew apps but it still does the freeze. I am able to enter maintenance mode on my Wii just fine, though.I am on System Menu 4.3U.
What could the issue be, and what other information do I need to provide do get some good advice?

You can try to flash your nand.
If maintenance mode works ok, try the mailbrick fix
By flashing my nand do you mean using something like ohneswanzenegger?

Edit: I already tried the mailbrick fix a while ago

Please ignore that user, all he has done today is post useless/incorrect or repeat information into threads.
Flashing your nand will work (but I wouldnt do it unless you have bootmii as boot2), but its the last resort.
it sounds like you have a mailbox brick.
I do have bootmii as a boot2 and am able to get to the Homebrew channel, USB Loader GX, and any other homebrew app I may have installed. I can play games on my system with no issues. But I have so many WiiWare/Virtual Console downloads that I'd be heartbroken if I lost them all. Would flashing my nand make me lose all of that?
Well, you can format the wii from settings (this seems to work for people that the mailbox brick failed on)
However, this could leave you without HBC.
Do you have bootmii as boot2 or as an IOS
bootmii is boot2. I can't format my Wii from the settings because I can only get to the system menu by loading Maintenance Mode, but that doesn't allow you to get into the Wii settings.
