Default can a motherboard damage hard disk?

I bought a new core 2 duo competable computer on February 26, 2008 and after two weeks the hard disk got bad sectors, i changed the hard disk and after one month the second hard disk started metalic clicking sounds and then it stoped working, once again i changed the hard disk but after two days the third hard disk also produced the same problem as the second one and eventually it also stoped working, i then installed the new hard disk and also changed the power supply (PSU) hoping that there might be somthing wrong with the power supply but unfortunately i was wrong as for the fourth time the hard disk gave, this time the hard disk functioned for only three weeks. I would now like to have your opinion about the possible problems that my computer might be having.
my system specs are:
2.20 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
Intel DG1PR Motherboard
all the four drives were Maxtor 160 GB SATA
1 GB DDR II Kingston RAM
