Constant freezing so bad i can't do anything

I just finished building my PC, but i have been having some serious freezing issues, First it would happen while i was installing windows, but i finally managed to get that installed, then it would freeze while i was installing drivers. I had to restart it so many times that i corrupted some Windows files, so now i'm back to trying to install windows. Can anyone offer me any advice? I tried running the memory test from the repair windows screen, but the computer froze before i could get through it. I went into the BIOS and changed it from native IDE to AHCI, but that just caused it to jump through a bunch of error screens to fast for me to read, then go black. I have no drivers installed and i think that the chipset drivers may help, but i don't know how to install them without getting to the desktop. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi :) 

Run a hard drive test in DOS... HIRENS BOOT CD etc, it sounds like a failing hard drive...

All the best Brett :)
