Default do i need a new harddrive?

i got it to install, but it freezes after a few minutes, usually, if i
havent used it for a few hours it'll work for a while, but ultimatly
it always freezes.

this is the second hard drive in under 3 years, are durons that
unstable that they systematically destroy hard drives?

Sorry to give you the news, but your drive is probably crouptt and you
might want to reformat it on another system and chkdsk it and fix all
the problems, if unfixable then toss it.

i've always had problems with this computer, could it be possible that
the power supply was overcharging it the whole time?
