Linux Splash crash

When I start PCLinuxOS LiveCD it loads up the splash screen after login and it says initializing system services now sometimes it crashes at this point and will not load or go any further sometimes it gets to the peripherals and then crashes but just yesterday it got to initialising system services and then the splash screen went off and the background stayed there but nothing else loads. This burn is a good burn becuase I have had Linux installed from this CD just last week but I needed to reformat my HardDrive.
Any help would be appreciated Thanx.

have you tried using fdisk to format the drive first? do a memtest with http://www.memtest86.com/ and see if you have any bad ram
