Could be the RAM. Can you download and burn Memtest86 on a CD and run it to check the memory?

What brand is the HD? You might want to run diagnostics even though it's new. New hard drives have been known to be defective.

hdd is bad, esp if you can hear it clicking repeatedly. Send it in for warranty exchange.
