    Based upon your symptoms and if you've erased your hard drive and reinstalling from the correct DVD fails it's more likely the hard drive is defective. Hope you have a viable backup. Replacing hard drives is economical and very straight forward. If you bought Applecare and it's still valid, then make contact with an AASP or Apple Store.

    Open up Disk Utility and run the 'Repair Disk' until it comes back without doing any repairs (then try to install the OS) or tells you the disk is not repairable.

    I'm with steve on this one though. I don't trust a drive once it begins exhibiting problems and just replace them. Drives are inexpensive nowadays.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
