define 'weird noises'?

Yeah, based on what you tell us (with the possible exception of 'weird noises'), the main suspects in my opininion are: RAM, motherboard, PSU (in that order)

My computer just had another BSOD, and then when i restarted my computer it would freeze on the windows boot screen, so i ran a chkdsk /p from my xp cd and it found errors on the drive and it recovered them, allowing me to load windows again...does this mean my hdd is bad?....when this happened before i thought my xp installation was corrupted so i installed vista and the same thing happened.

how could i diagnose my motherboard????

My vote is the motherboard is going bad.
If your ran memtest 3+ times then its probably not the ram
If you ran smart then its probably not the hd
Is that p4 stock?

Check the voltages of the PSU in the bios. I had a psu murder my last computer. It had unexplainable problems before it died. Something you might want to look into.

The P4 is stock.
HDD is SATA.
My Windows installation keeps getting corrupted......i have defraged and reinstalled the OS several times, i even tried Vista....if i put the windows installation in a separate partion will this fix it from getting corrupted??

here are some of the BSOD's i have had

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

BAD_POOL_CALLER

win32k.sys

BF834907

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (I get this one the most frequently)

0X0000008E
