Windows 7: Crashing and corruption after Windows 7 re-install

Crashing and corruption after Windows 7 re-install

I'm not sure if this is in the right section, but I'm sure it can be moved otherwise. Sorry for any inconvenience if it has to.

Essentially after a few years of using my current computer I wiped the hard drive and re-installed. I did a complete wipe by booting from my Windows 7 disk and then "Deleting" the entire Hard Drive before re-installing. Do not misunderstand I "Deleted" the Hard Drive contents, without "Formatting" using some advance options in the installation stage.

After reinstalling Windows 7 I had numerous issues, such as my Integrated Graphics card acting faulty, causing GUI problems. I'v also had my network card fail and eventually it seemed the Hard Drive corrupted itself since Windows 7 refused to load. So Once again I wiped, reinstalled and it worked fine again for another 3 days or so before happening again, at which point I restored my computer to an earlier state, which happened to be before and update and it now works again.

However I'v started noticing some issues once again, it seems they develop after a period of 3-4 days. My GUI is playing up and reverting back to the native settings and style. I also started my computer up and Windows ran a Hard Drive check for corruption and removed some files.

Could there be a cause for this? Sorry about the wall of text.

TLDR: Reinstalled Windows 7 numerous times and I'm still getting problems with various parts of the computer.

Note: I reinstalled "Drivers" necessary and updated them.
