Default help with bsods on games when loading

hi guys, i need help with getting bsods when games load.

here is what happens:
open game> game starts to load> i hear hdd click (i dont like the sound of it)> i get a bsod

this happens with all of my games, UT2003/04 and GTA SA

i would try reinstalling, but these games are big (over 5gb) so it takes ages, so i wanna see if there are alternatives first

specs:
-xp pro
-250gb seagate barracuda sata
-512mb kingston ram :-(
-asrock dual 939 mobo
-amd athlon x2 4800


i dont think my hdd is dead because everthing else works

thanks in advance

hazza
